The most recent influential paper related to the tradition of coquetry was written by Mariana Achugar and published in The Journal of Pragmatics in2001. Unlike Andrews’ study, Achugar’s work incorporated many findings from multiple Latin American countries. While much of Achugar’s study focused on the originality of the coquetry as well as the metaphoric and hyperbolic nature of the comments made, she included enlightening observations regarding the social function of coquetry (2001).Achugar based her analysis on the idea that language and discourse practices reflect and sustain culture and cultural associations that exist within any given society. By analysing the use of coquetry in Spanish-speaking countries, Achugar (2001) revealed a pronounced link between a culture and its ideology, and she argued that coquetry demonstrates “a very defined place for each sex in society” (p. 135). In her study, “Coquetry as Metaphors for Gender Roles in Spanish Speaking Cultures,” she argued that coquetry often reproduce traditional gender structures by reinforcing the notion that women are passive recipients and men are active producers and initiators in Latin America (2001).Despite her enlightening examination of the use of coquetry in Spanish-Speakingcountries, there are certain limitations to Achugar’s research and analysis.
Both the Heritage of World Civilization and An Imperial World book assists the learner understand the lineage of significant events along with the leadership and major conflicts that occurred. The Underdogs is a novel by Mariana Azuela that complements the story pointed out by the aforementioned literatures. I learned a lot from the reading material and the Tegrity sessions, but the Underdogs novel, gave me an inside view on what it was to be a part of the Mexican revolution. This first person story brings to light on the characters and viewpoints of the people during that time. I can really appreciate my personal upbringings when compared to the rough lifestyle of Mexicans during that timeline.
As constant as change, historical development of masculinity and gender stratification in Mexico and for Mexican Americans had been continuously occuring. Lies behind that development are myriad of factors and concepts that can be acceptable to many however prone to create critiques to others as well. In a working-class neighborhood in Sto Domingo Mexico, where Matthew Guttman conducted his ethnographic field work to delve into the changing males identities, several factors lead to a deeper understanding of this dramatic tranformation of what it really means to be a man and or a woman. Gender relations is always brought back by the shadow of historical past, which can only be revealed by tracing the roots using the national and cultural histories of Mexican Culture and exploring the differences particularly on how male and female played a significant role. Masculinity had been always synonymous to the word macho.
Sports and soccer are social practices, which provide us a wide range of social interaction with a lot of passion and emotion. If we think about soccer and fandom, most of the people would picture a man, drinking beer and supporting the team, he is passionate about. Actually, this image is common, but according to Tofoletti (2013), female fans are more or less ignored, indeed “historical studies have demonstrated the exclusion of women from many sports and their highly restrictive participation in others” (2013: 2). Certainly, it considers to which extent stereotypes of female sports fan reveal about gender power relations in sports. This paper argues that sexism is strongly embedded in sports and soccer, meaning sexist attitudes and actions continue even if individuals, especially male supporters are not consciously aware of them.
Latin America is a region that is marked by sequences of diversity. It is a region not only varied in cultural and geographical characteristics, it is also marked by diversity in the field of economy and politics. When we talk about Latin American economy and politics, there is not such a thing as one Latin American model that countries cohere to. Rather, there is a conflicting approach to these issues, which has led to an economic dichotomy in the region. Pacific Alliance and Mercosur are the two main trade blocs that are involved.

She explains that in David or Brenda’s life she started to present ‘masculine’ traits such as “developing the desire to buy toy machine gun… Brenda liked to stand to urinate” (745). These things are considered male traits and David/Brenda being a girl made the people around her worry. Mead ,on the other hand says, that there are different gender roles or stereotypes but based on society and location they can change, “Women wear long hair and men wear short hair, or men wear curls and women shave their heads…”(712). These are all possible temperaments that could occur for both sexes depending on the
