El Salvador elections: Putting women's right on the agenda

Jenny Pierce's recent piece about El Salvador on the Inter-American Development Bank's blog, Sin Miedos, questioned where women's voices fit into discussions surrounding the (in)famous gang truce brokered in 2012. While Pierce's question remains salient, perhaps at a more fundamental level, there should be a question about where women's voices fit into ideas of security in El Salvador more generally. As elections rapidly approach, it is important to observe whether promises for women's rights will indeed enter the agenda of the new president.
