Summary: The war climate that has prevailed in recent years in Mexico has damaged the international perception of the country. The deaths triggered by the official war against the Mexican drug cartels have been more than 50,000 and the number continues to increase daily. In particular, women journalists and human rights activists have been affected by this socially aggravated environment. Not only do they suffer from the entrenched gender violence, but also violence generated by both the State and organized crime. In this essay I will analyze work published by three distinguished and talented Mexican journalists: Lydia Cacho, Carmen Aristegui and Anabel Hernández, who, in spite of the menaces against them, have emerged as leaders of opinion and as well as being advocated activists to the defense of the freedoms and human rights of marginalized subjects.
