Etremely noticeable today was how visible women were in the election voting lines

I assume it has something to do with the gains made by women since 2007 when #Sandinistas returned to power


1. 2007- 2017
Maternal mortality rates reduced by 42% according to World Bank!
2. Nicaragua currently ranked 5th in the world for gender parity according to the World Economic Forum it ranked 90th in 2007!!

3. Ranked joint 1st in Educational Attainment, which measures ratios of female to male school enrollments and the female to male literacy rate.
.. Due to elimination of school fees + the introduction of lunch programs

4. 🇳🇮 passed a comprehensive law against gender-based violence in 2012 + an electoral law on gender quotas which resulted 45% of seats in the legislature and 42.5% of mayoral offices being held by women!
