Managua - Post Report Question and Answers

Are there problems with ethnic, race/racial minorities or religious prejudices? Gender equality?

There is discrimination against indigenous and Afro-descendant groups. There is also discrimination against women although I have not felt it. Most major businesses are headed by men, and the newspapers feature stories about successful men alongside pictures of half-naked women. There are many vocal women's rights groups and it is an issue that is openly discussed in the media. - Apr 2018
