Ilja A. Luciak examines the efforts of Central American women, from both the political left and right in El Salvador and Nicaragua, to build alliances across ideological boundaries in order to effectively advocate women's rights during the transition toward political systems rooted in democratic governance and gender equality. He discusses coalition-building in El Salvador and Nicaragua in order to demonstrate the progress that has been made and the key challenges confronting the leaders of the Central American women's movement. He argues that female leaders are playing an increasingly important role in the fight to ensure democratic governance in Central America.Development (2002) 45, 67–73. doi:10.1057/palgrave.development.1110320
