The Sandinista National Liberation Front is a democratic socialist political party in Nicaragua which traces it roots back to the fight against the United States occupation during the 30’s. During the 70’s, the Sandinistas became a global symbol of revolution as they battled the authoritarian Somoza regime and won. As soon as Somoza was toppled, however, the movement reverted back its patriarchal roots, and the fearless female soldiers who had helped bring about the revolution were effectively written out of the party’s history. Equally engrossing and enraging LAS SANDINISTAS! is a film about the gender equality of war and a revolution hijacked by reactionary forces.
