¡Las Sandinistas! recounts the “forgotten” story of a group of women who made courageous life choices in order to fight for social reform during the 1979 Sandinista revolution in Nicaragua, and the subsequent guerrilla action of the Contras, backed by the United States. Even after all these years, these same women continue in their battle for equal rights and justice, both of which are still severely limited by the current government.
