The Day Mexican Women Disappeared

In this episode we delve into what's happening with women in Mexico, why they have created a historic movement, the unprecedented march on March 8th and their strike on March 9th, when they all decided to "disappear" with no movement online, at work or in the streets, having an economic impact of over £1 bn on the country.
