The Cycle of Aubse: Marianismo and Machismo in the Hispanic Community
This workshop will examine the cultural distinctives of marianismo and machismo in Hispanic culture and how these values can perpetuate violence within family systems especially towards women and children. We will discuss in detail these cultural distinctives and how the cultural stigma about speaking out can actually keep victims in cycles of abuse.
