Ortega's Nicaragua: men-only socialism

Daniel Ortega, leader of the Sandinistas who took power in 1979, made a deal with the Catholic Church in Nicaragua.

Cardinal Miguel Obando y Bravo had helped to arrange his removal the first time around, in 1990. Ortega won the election in 2006, with Obando's support.

All he had to do was promise to injure and kill girls and women.

He's kept up his end of the bargain.
