Human rights lawyer and journalist, Gisela Pérez De Acha and journalist with El Universal Mexico, Melissa Amezcua join Maria and Julio to discuss the recent wave of feminist protests in Mexico. They talk about the gender-based violence that provoked the demonstrations and how the AMLO administration has fallen short of their duty to protect women. They also speak about the new details that have emerged from a recent New York Times essay that calls out Justice Brett Kavanaugh for sexual misconduct (in addition to The Times’ correction controversy).
