A recent article by Laura Mannen in the Freedom Socialist (http://www.socialism.com/fsarticles/vol30no1/nicaragua.html) details the rightward swing of the Sandinista National Liberation Front and President Daniel Ortega, and how this affects the ability for women in that country to control their own bodies and even to congregate as activists. In a cynical move, Ortega and his wife denounce feminists as cultural imperialists and agents of foreign subversion.
