Argentina: The Grandmothers of Plaza de Mayo

Erwin in The Latin Americanist features Argentina's Grandmothers of Plaza de Mayo on International Woman's Day: “The ‘Abuelas’ were founded in 1977 with the aim of finding babies stolen during the ‘Dirty War’ period. In the 34 years since their creation, the group has reportedly identified over 100 children whose biological parents where either killed or ‘disappeared’ under the brutal military regime.”
