Many women have changed the course of history, yet we rarely hear their story today. Juana Azurduy de Padilla was instrumental in the Bolivian war for independence and Rufina Amaya's testimony uncovered one of the most cruel massacres in Latin American history, both the United States government and the Salvadoran government tried to deny it. Next week, we will return to spooky stories, but today, we share the story of these amazing women. Both stories occurred during a time of war, and include murder, death and rape, listen with caution.
