Hello my name is melissa wright

  1. 1. Hello my name is Melissa W. Wright; I am an associate professor of geographyin the department of women’s studies at Pennsylvania State University. I am theauthor of Disposable Women and Other Myths of Global Capitalism (2006). I alsowrote many articles base on capitalism, gender, power and nationality in Mexico andChina. I wrote about Necropolitics, Narcopolitics, and Femicide: Gendered Violenceon the Mexico-U.S. Border. My focused is on the emergence of an international social movement thatprotest violence against women along the Mexico –US border.Narcropolitics is politics and a form of informal governing/control related to drugs anddrugs trafficking My thought about the Narcopolitics involves the Mexicangovernment. The govement mentions how the deaths in Juarez and throughout Mexicoare certified to the drug wars and that those who are murdered were involved in thedrug trade. As the ones who are committing the murders called the narcos which inEnglish stands for drug lords, are the ones who are committing rationalmurders.consequently, these murders are “justified” according to some officials inMexico, making it unfair for the victims’ families. I account for both nacopolitics andfemicide using the concept of gendering to explain both issues in the Ciudad Juarez.Some models in which I use in my article is Narcopolitics which is a form of informalgoverning using politics in order to control drugs trafficking. I believe that Necropolitics and femicide are a major issues happening in CiudadJuarez which are in need of help.
