A portrait of the lives of women in the Central American country wracked by war. Drawing upon interviews with the refugees in Mexico and Nicaragua, as well as a visit to El Salvador itself, the authors describe the roles, consciousness and struggles of Salvadorian women in the family and at work, in the Church and the trade unions. They stress, in particular, women's participation in the struggle to free their country of US-supported military domination.
