In 1977, 14 women met to form the Mothers of the Plaza de Mayo to find out what had happened to their children who were disappearing in government raids and abductions during Argentina’s Dirty War. The women started marching peacefully in front of the presidential palace to draw attention to the disappeared and to demand the government answer for its crimes and its part in killing their youth.
