central america women’s rights in focus

A network which helps support the struggles for women’s rights in Central America has published their latest newsletter.

The CAWN autumn newsletter is availabe here.It includes several articles on Nicaragua, including a recent network report,  Maternal Health, Reproductive Rights and the Criminalisation of Abortion (see here).

Although the report isn’t favourable to the present Nicaraguan government, unlike some other organisations, it puts the situation in the context of other countries’ policies in the region, as well as explaining some of the things the Sandinistas have done to improve women’s health.

For more analysis on the issue of therapeutic abortion in Nicaragua, and why it is hard to change the current situation, see one of our posts from June 2011 (here), with several contributions from Karla Jacobs.
