Women and the State in Post-Sandinista Nicaragua
"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.
