This thesis examines divergences, motives and issues incorporated in current narrative styles that break away from the older femenine–figure–oriented work. This investigation was done with Gabriela Mora’s theory of literary criticism as it’s main reference, as presented in her essay “Narradoras hispanoamericanas: Vieja y nueva problemática en renovadas elaboraciones.” Mora’s theory was applied to three stories written by Olga Nolla and three other stories written by Miriam González‐Hernández. On the one hand, Nolla’s narrative is presented in a traditional way, showing the first steps in breaking down female roles imposed by a patriarchal culture. On the other, in González‐Hernández’s narrative, through language and different perspectives, these roles are subverted by incorporating new issues and problems related with changes in the feminine environment.
