Beginning with the re-emergence of popular organizations and the FMLN's armed struggle in the late 1970s, Salvadoran women have achieved an impressive track record in organizing.

Women's economic struggles as wives and mothers, their health concerns, rape, battering, and legislative discrimination are now a part of the Salvadoran political spectrum, thanks to the relentless persistence of women activists. 1
