The stereotypical role of a Hispanic woman (or Hispanic women) in Latin America is that the woman stays at home, bears/rears the children, cooks/cleans, and is submissive to the husband. Since the divorce rates and out of wedlock pregnancies are growing at an enormous rate in Latin America, this stereotype is changing. More and more Hispanic women are breaking through the workforce and becoming, in a sense, their own bosses. Hispanic women are taking charge, working, while still being able to juggle children and all the responsibilities of home life. Although the idea of machismo still runs rampant in Latin America, hispanic women are taking a stand and making historical changes.
