Bolivia’s President Evo Morales stepped down Sunday following weeks of protests around allegations of electoral fraud in the Oct. 20 election, which he claimed to have won. Now he’s in Mexico accepting asylum, saying that he’s the victim of a coup.

Host Tamara Khandaker speaks to Christina Ewig, a professor at the University of Minnesota whose research focuses on the politics of gender and race in Latin America. They discuss what’s happened in Bolivia so far, and try to place what’s going on there into the wider context of the unrest seen across Latin America right now.
