In this article Dr Marina Prieto-Carron examines the work burdens of women within the productive, as well as the reproductive, spheres, looking at the approach taken by the Working and Unemployed Women's Movement Maria Elena Cuadra (MEC) in understanding and addressing women's labour rights. She considers the difficulties facing women workers in Central American countries such as Nicaragua, and concludes that the holistic approach of MEC in providing women with knowledge on issues beyond labour rights per se, such as self-esteem, domestic violence and economic literacy, produces positive changes in the lives of these women and those around them.
