Women play a major role in Hispanic households. They are not expected to become doctors, lawyers, engineers, or architects. Growing up, I found myself constantly arguing with my parents. I would get upset as soon as their explanations ended with “because you are a girl.” It was unfair they made me do things that my brothers were also capable of doing.
