In a tiny Mexican town, women fought corruption and won

Hosted by

When residents of Cheran got sick of too much corruption and violence, and couldn’t trust the police or authorities to do anything about it, they took matters into their own hands. They staged a revolt and established their own government. For six years, there hasn’t been any serious crime -- not one murder. Cheran is in the state of Michoacan, where authorities say almost 600 people were killed between January and May this year.
