Over 600 crosses set up in front of the student union at the University of Utah in rembrance of women who were killed near the U.S./Mexico border. Signs by the crosses say "Since 1993, 600 girls and women have been killed in Cuidad Juarez and Chihuahua City, Mexico. Most of the victims were young and poor, and many were sexually assaulted prior to their deaths. The authorities have done little to investigate or prosecute those responsible. In her film 'Senorita Extraviada' Dolores Portillo explores the world of Juarez Mexico in order to bring to light those deplorable acts of violence against women." This picture was taken on Dia de los Muertos.
