By May 1991, one of the world's most ruthless terrorist groups, the Shining Path, had left 30,000 known dead in its 10-year guerilla war against the Peruvian government. At dusk on May 21, 1991 in the Andean town of Huasahuasi, a silver-haired Australian woman became part of the horrifying death toll. Sister Irene McCormack, a Catholic nun, was executed after a mock trial that saw a young woman terrorist label her a Yankee Imperialist before firing a bullet at point-blank range into the back of her head. Anne Henderson goes beyond the headlines to ask what makes a woman leave the safety of Australia to travel to an impoverished village in rural Peru, and asks, just who exactly was Irene McCormack?
