The thesis also shows that the subject depending on the context places it self in different subject positions. In some cases another person allocates the subject the subject position. In other cases the subject have the possibility to define her self and demonstrate how she wishes to be conceived. The women interviewed often portrayed themselves as educated but this was a subject position that caused a conflict with societies images of them as ?oppressed?. (Less)
