Norma Esther Andrade – Fighting against the brutal murder of young women in Ciudad Juárez

On Valentine's Day in 2000, 17-year-old Lilia Alejandra García Andrade was abducted while on her way home from work in Ciudad Juárez, Mexico. She was later found after having been brutally raped, tortured and killed. The murderer was supposedly never found. Sadly, Lilia's fate has been shared by hundreds of girls and young women to date in and around Ciudad Juárez, a major city in the northern Mexican state of Chihuahua.
