Maybe no. They're simply inside the convent with an all-women community serving for a cause.
I can't imagine any agenda other than devotion to God as demonstrated through prayer, personal sacrifice, and work in the community.
I don't know if you intended it or not, but it sounds like you're implying feminism is a bad thing. The feminist movement is all about equal treatment for everyone, regardless of gender, so even if they did have this in mind, I don't think it would be a negative. The story in question, about them not doing enough to denounce abortion and gay-marriage just highlights how disconnected the Vatican is from what's happening on the ground. Should a nun turn away someone who is looking for help, even though they are gay or have had an abortion? If Jesus's message was really to help others, then I don't think it benefits the church to be discriminatory. Nuns understand this, but I don't think the men in their golden city do.

I find myself questioning every day all the beliefs that the nuns beat into me for 8 years. It's not only how they taught us, it is what they taught us. Those women had a very simplistic view on life and religion. To question brought the wrath of the yard stick across the back of the shins.How did...
