¡Las Sandinistas!

Season: 3
Eps: 6

Meet the women who overcame traditional gender barriers to lead rebel troops during Nicaragua’s 1979 Sandinista Revolution. The film exposes a watershed moment when women transformed their society’s definition of womanhood before facing renewed marginalization by their male peers. Now, 35 years later, these same women brave the streets to once again lead movements for equality and democracy.
