LAS CRUCES, N.M. (AP) - The struggles of poor women in Ciudad Juarez are the focus on a New Mexico State University event.

Elsa Patricia Hernandez, a professor and former journalist in the Mexican border city, is scheduled to be a feature speaker at the event on campus Thursday.

Hernandez is slated to discuss how violence along the border and the economy has affected women in the troubled city.
