A Young Mother’s Suicide

Posted by Jack Stephens on June 3, 2007

Marisa Trevino, of the blog Latina Lista, blogs about the suicide of Gilberta Estrada-Vega and of the realities of living in immigrant communities as well as the mainstream media’s reaction:

As always happens when news spreads of a mother committing suicide and taking her kids with her, newspaper columnists and talk show radio hosts take turns villifying the woman. Yet, Gilberta’s actions underscored a problem that is HUGE, but not discussed enough within the immigrant community, and mainstream society needs to pay attention before more tragedies like Gilberta’s find their way regularly into the headlines.
