Abstract

This paper seeks to establish a better scholarly understanding of the roles and influences that machismo and marianismo play in Latin America. Many scholars say that machismo and marianismo go hand in hand with one another. In a perfect society, they are originally supposed to balance each other out for the greater good of all people. However, over time, the characteristics of machismo has turned detrimental to Latin women and society as a whole. In this paper, l will argue that the stereotypical roles that machismo and marianismo automatically bestow on men in women in Latin America are harming the progression of their society.
