To analyze our gathered material we used narrative method and narrative theory with a socialconstructionist perspective and the discourse theory for further understanding and explanation. An explanation we found applicable to the interviewees different narratives about the same topics was that different political and cultural contexts affected the interviewees’ interpretation and understanding, which as well contributed to conflicts within the movement. Previous research has pointed out differences and existing conflicts between women’s rights movements in Nicaragua, research that contributed to substantiate the result of our study. (Less)
