In El Salvador, we've been working with the Organization of Salvadoran Women for Peace (ORMUSA) since 2003. One of their many activities is to monitor working conditions in the factories of the maquilas (free trade zones) with a particular focus on violence against women. They offer psychological support to victims of violence, including the formation of self-help groups and have a call-in service to respond to labour and other problems.

They work with municipal authorities, police and health officials to achieve policy changes that affect women's working conditions as well working on important issues of women's health nationally.
