No country for machos: What is there about machismo in Brazil and Latin America?

No country for machos: What is there about machismo in Brazil and Latin America?
- In Brazil, the killing of a female due to domestic violence or ‘simple’ gender-based hatred is called feminicide. It was ratified as a law in March, 2015, and tries to protect the 13 women daily murdered every day in Brazil under those circumstances. Those who did not recognise value in the making of this legal device generally assume the use of it as a maneuver from Mrs. Rousseff, who was the president back in those days, or the inutility of a resolution that ‘harms the universality present in the Brazilian Constitution’. These arguments are, for themselves, a reflection of how resistant and traditional public opinion can be - a direct result of our political immaturity.
