Abstract:

Women at war is a topic of high interest with limited information available on specific experiences. Military-type organizations exist that have trained and employed women in combat roles, yet the experience hasnt been fully or accurately documented. This project explores the experiences of Nidia Diaz, a female insurgent in the Revolutionary Party of Central American Workers PRTC of El Salvador during the 1980s. She held various leadership positions and was promoted to Commandante. The goal of the research was to determine if she was a successful insurgent leader.
