"Metoyer first analyzes women's social gains and losses during the Sandinista era. She then turns to the impact of Chamorro's structural adjustment programs. Considering the position of women in post-Sandinista society, she provides a nuanced discussion of Nicaragua's economic and social reality, as well as a rethinking of the ideology that underlies much development policy."--BOOK JACKET.
