Algunas mujeres luchan ________ se reconozcan sus derechos laborales. Some women fight for the recognition of their work rights.Answer: por que.
Hi, a comment, the meaning of por que would be clearer by using the literal English translation. “Some women fight so that their work rights are recognized”. The English used here translates into Algunas mujeres luchan por el reconocimiento de sus derechos laborales. Shirley.

Hi Shirley

I understand your point, however, the use of "so that" will be more of a "para que..." not "por que..." - this is the reason why we didn't use it in this test-question. Nevertheless I will add a hint that will make clear that there is a "por" involved in this case as this is the preposition required by the verb "luchar por algo" meaning to fight for something. 

Gracias y saludos cordiales

Thank you Inma. Would the sentence be correct without “que”? Thanks again. Shirley.

Hi Shirley, you can't drop the "que" as you have a conjugated verb after.
