The following video gives a snapshot of the many different Nicaraguan women who are rebuilding their country. As ever, we see the spectacular contributions of women who have bucked tradition so as to give birth to themselves and then give of themselves to others. More than anything, we see women of all ages, everywhere in Nicaragua, grasp each other’s hands and take control of their lives, their governance, their agriculture, their communities, in concert with the Frente Sandinista de Liberación Nacional (FSLN), led by Daniel Ortega and Rosario Murillo.
