A Powerful Comic Profiles Women Working for Human Rights in Mexico

Front Line Defenders is an international human rights group that has begun using comics to tell the stories of powerful activists. The first comic book in their series about human rights activists focuses on women who are advocating for rights and safety in Mexico.  La Lucha: The Story of Lucha Castro and Human Rights in Mexico is a moving story about communities working to end corruption and violence. We’re excited to excerpt two short stories from the comic here. The narratives below discuss the real-life experiences of two activists featured in the book. For more stories, please check out the comic at Front Line Defenders.
