The Hijas de Juarez project was created in response to the abduction and murder of hundreds of women from the Mexican city of Juarez (situated across the border from El Paso, Texas) which began in the early 1990’s. After years of negligence and failure to act on the part of local Mexican officials, women activists on both sides of the border began a bi-national campaign to raise awareness about the unsolved murders and to press government officials into action. As part of the bi-national Hijas de Juarez campaign in 2002 SPARC hosted various events including a gallery exhibition featuring art by Mexican and American artists dedicated to the memory of the Hijas de Juarez. SPARC keeps an ongoing watch on developments concerning the Women of Juarez.
