Feminicides–the killing of women because of their gender–have been occurring for decades in both Mexico and in Canada. Why has there been so much impunity surrounding these cases and so little justice for the victims and their families? What can be done to put a stop to them, to help Mexican women and Indigenous women in Canada live their lives unthreatened and in peace, as they should in both countries? What parallels can be drawn between both the Mexican and Canadian feminicide cases?

In this two-part documentary series, CKUT’s Emma Noradounkian seeks answers to all of these questions, and more. This is the first half of the documentary series; it delves into the cases of feminicides in Mexico.
