Photographer Katie Orlinsky traveled to Mexico to document the drug war’s effect on women and concludes that with an overall death toll of more than 30,000, the country faces a humanitarian crisis.

These photos are from the women’s prison in Ciudad Juarez where approximately 80 percent of the inmates are incarcerated for drug-related crimes. Throughout Mexico, the incarceration rate for women has risen 400 percent since 2007.
