This documentary film looks at the women’s movement taking place along Mexican border cities where the issues of migration and labor in the maquiladoras (factories) affect the condition of women. During the time of the Ciudad Juarez mass murders, Mexican women’s organizations are making key steps to ensure a safer and transparent environment for female factory workers.

Along with the director, a PhD candidate and a Professor of Sociology, Ruchika travelled to eight different towns along the U.S-Mexico border to film with feminists.
