“Nos Están Matando (They’re Killing Us),” an essay by Ana Karina Zatarain for Purple #36 the Mexico issue

“Like everywhere else, gender inequality in Mexico is itself unequal — that is, the type and levels of oppression that women are subjected to are largely determined by class and race. In recent years, however, either out of a sense of sisterhood or the contagious nature of fear and outrage, women of all races and social classes in Mexico have come together to decry a stark reality: nos están matando — they’re killing us.”
