I've struggled quite a bit. My quest to become a successful Latina in this society has not been easy. However, I am happy with what I have accomplished so far in life. There is only one aspect in my life that I have abandoned, or shall I say failed at, relationships.

You would think that as the generations progress the gender stereotypes in the Latino culture would change, not completely of course...but maybe a little.

Well I have had my ups and downs when it comes to relationships and they have mostly been because of the machista culture in the Latino society. Where males feel that must and are superior to their female partners and equality between them does not exist. Though many say that they want a partner equal to them, what I have noticed is that its not true equality. If a female earns more or is seen as too independent it makes some latinos feel that their masculinity if being threatened.

Just a thought.
