The Martyrs of Chihuahua

The Texas Observer has an article which does a much better job than anything else I've seen of explaining why Marisol Valles (who is 21 years old and has a small child) felt she had to step down as the police chief of Praxedis G. Guerrero for her safety and the safety of her family. Read what is happening to these women in Chihuahua as they try to overcome corruption and reclaim their country. Their bravery is inspiring, but what is happening to them is heartbreaking.
