The report summarizes up-to-date findings on the interdependency of political regime structures and gender relations in Nicaragua and the current status of the Nicaraguan women’s movement. It sketches the specific situation and status of women in Nicaraguan society and analyzes the challenges that the women’s movement faces as regards the difficult and highly politicized regime context. The report is based on a literature review focusing on recent studies on women and civil society in Nicaragua and complemented by interviews conducted with civil society experts and women’s organization leaders in Nicaragua in the summer of 2013.
