Meet the Journalists: Patricia Clarembaux and Almudena Toral

In El Salvador, the country with the highest rate of femicides in the most violent region in the world, young girls are taking their own lives. And the victims are getting younger. In the midst of poverty and violence, where gangs operate with a brutality that’s become normalized, those who manage to flee do so only after escaping to every possible corner of the country.

This multimedia project comprised of text, video, photography, animation and graphics tells the story of a dozen girls who attempted—and survived—suicide in El Salvador, and why it matters.
