Machismo is the term and “social construct” that upholds patriarchy and, at best, expects males in Latinx and Latin American communities to be brave, courageous, and strong providers. At worst, machismo underlies a decades long pattern of male aggression and violence towards women and marginalized communities. In the era of #MeToo and #YoTambién, Charla de Merienda asks: as gender relations are redefined across the Americas, should machismo survive? Join us for a riveting conversation in which we share facts, discuss opinions, and build common ground on matters concerning all of us.
