In the summer of 1989, a convoy of seventy women traveled from the United States to Central America to provide humanitarian aid to women in Mexico, Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras, and Nicaragua. Due to the political and economic climate at the time, many citizens were left lacking basic necessities such as food and medical supplies, so the Women’s Convoy to Central America was developed as a means of coordinating relief efforts between women’s groups in the affected regions and abroad. The slogan for the convoy was “Between women, there are no boundaries,” and the trip lasted for approximately five weeks.
