Feminism and the emerging nation in El Salvador

Emily Anderson


A new nation is emerging in El Salvador and it is the feminist organizations that are constructing and most effectively influencing the narrative that will characterize Salvadoran society into the future. The feminist organizations are working together in El Salvador to empower women, to aid them in their material needs, to demand equality, to demand rights, and to end violence. The feminist organizations are realigning the national values of El Salvador and creating a new nation through the reconstruction of gender roles, through the recognition and promotion of new nation heroes, and through their legislative impact which has begun to mandate new values such as social and political justice in society. These organizations, through their work, are not only improving the lives of Salvadoran women today, but are effectively influencing and writing the organic narrative of the El Salvador that will impact women into the future.
