Hernandez-Chacon v. Barr
"Petitioner contends that she is entitled to asylum because if she is returned to El Salvador, she will be persecuted on account of her membership in a particular social group ‐‐ Salvadoran women who have resisted the sexual advances of a gang member ‐ and political opinion ‐ resistance to the norm of female subordination to male dominance that pervades El Salvador. We agree that petitioner failed to establish her asylum claim based on membership in a particular social group, but we grant the petition for review with respect to her political opinion claim and remand to the Board of Immigration Appeals for further proceedings."
