Abstract:
Latin women in the United States face different challenges and discriminations when considering their gender. While the man is the dominant and independent partner, the woman’s role is to follow, obey and take care of the domestic role and child caring. Women usually define themselves by their husbands and children rather than as independent human beings. The Latinas also more likely to experience issues in female reproductive health, domestic violence and sexual assault. In many Latin families there are massive gender role stereotypes that each partner in a relationship needs to assume.
