Beschreibung:

Since 1993, more than 2,000 feminicidios have occurred in Ciudad Juarez, Mexico-once called "e;the feminicidio capital of the world."e; Who is killing the women of Juarez? Why is this happening? In Not One More! Feminicidio on the Border, Nina Maria Lozano seeks to answer these questions, turning a critical eye to the state structures and legal systems that allow and participate in the violence, rape, and murder propagated against thousands of women in the border town of Juarez. Finding theories of new materialism inadequate to explain the feminicidios, Lozano critiques and extends this approach-advancing instead a new theoretical framework, border materialism, to argue that capitalist systems of neoliberalism and free trade are directly correlated to the killing of women on the US-Mexico border. Through the author's fifteen-plus years of on-the-ground fieldwork, readers are presented with firsthand accounts, testimonies, and new social movement strategies from family members and activists attempting to stop these gendered crimes. By offering concrete case studies-including analysis of maquiladoras/factories and free trade zones, public monuments and murals memorializing the victims, rastreos/searches by family members for victims' DNA remains, and testimony from Mothers, family members, and activists-Not One More! lays bare the socioeconomic and geopolitical forces at work in the killing of women in Jurez.
