Context: Guatemala

36 years of violence and oppression because of the armed conflict in Guatemala left more than 100,000 dead, 50,000 disappeared, 250,000 orphans, more than 350 communities erased from the map, tens of thousands displaced, and hundreds of indigenous communities destroyed. Clandestine cemeteries are still being uncovered and countless human rights violations are left unpunished. Waves of violence continue to plague the country, affecting women in particular.
