Throughout Maya Angelou’s autobiographical series, we get to know a lot about the relationships she gets involved in throughout her life.

It is assumed that they are both faithful. Cristina is typically feminine in the way she dresses and presents herself, which is typical to the stereotypes of a female identity. The career stereotypes are slightly supported when we see that Frida is mostly supportive of Diego’s work by travelling with him for his jobs, but does not strive to create a career with her artwork. We see this change when she has her own art gallery opening and that she most likely sold some of her paintings at different times of her life. Diego
