This particular study focuses on the changes in the ideas and perspectives of Nicaraguan women throughout the span of several generations. With the gaining popularity and successful strides that women have made to advance the Women’s Movement in Nicaragua, the definition of empowerment, the ideology of stereotypes, and the manner in which family is structured have transformed. Through oral histories from a range of Nicaraguan women, empowerment, stereotypes, and family structure are analyzed to comprehend in what way these aspects have or have not changed. Through the interviews, women explained their personal beliefs about what they had interpreted based on their experiences. From their dialogue, empowerment connections were made with historical events based on ages.

Lastly, in regards to family structure, women had alluded to several different themes leaving the topic open for interpretation.
