This article analyzes an influential feminist radio program in Nicaragua, "Cuerpos sin-verguenzas." Particularly, the analysis centers on one episode of the program that discusses Mary of Nazareth, in order to show how the program deals with the pressing question of gender equality. By showing the history of gendered stories and stereotypes, the program de-naturalizes and transforms cultural patterns and norms. The hosts and guests of the show work to deconstruct the most highly consecrated, and therefore restrictive, models for masculinity and femininity.
