In Mexico, women lead some of the most important movements in defense of rights. From facing off against mining companies in Oaxaca and other states, to organizing to search for loved ones and other disappeared persons, to building autonomous communities in Chiapas, to protecting native corn, they are standing up and talking back to power. This show presents some of their day-to-day struggles this year.
