Leonilda Zurita, a senator in the national congress and one of the major leaders for the women's movement in coca production talks on her cell phone near her home in Eterezama, Bolivia after returning from a recent trip to Argentina. Being a senator keeps Zurita busy and in constant need to communicate with others. While Zurita is in a constant state of travel, she still finds time to come home to her husband and work in her coca field. Zurita has worked closely with the newly elected  president Evo Morales in a fight to liberate coca production in Bolivia.
