Transcript of Chronicles of a Death Foretold

Sociology Machismo - Exaggerated pride in masculinity, perceived as power, often coupled with a minimal sense of responsibility and disregard of consequences.

Requires separate male and female roles in economic life and consumption, the reliance of women on men, and distinct sets of life goals for men and women. Machismo 1950s Colombian Social Classes: Higher Class
Men of the upper and middle class had always been and protective toward their dependents and tried to shelter their wives and children from undesirable outside influences. The social life of women in the upper and middle classes, particularly of unmarried girls, was limited to the home, the school, the church, and well-chaperoned parties and dances.
Most upper-class and upper-middle-class women did not work after marriage but devoted themselves to their families, and church.
Most middle-class and upper-class families still tried to provide their children with the most elaborate church wedding they could afford. Roles of Women 1950s: By: King Ephraim the Great, Derrick & Jerry Cultural Context:

Wife considered the father's deputy and the chief administrator of domestic activities. Her first duty was to bear and raise children. She was also expected to keep the household running smoothly and efficiently. Now: With more women holding higher-paying jobs and occupying prominent positions in society, the role of machismo is less dominant.

There are a lot of single mothers at head of house but they are not given same work, same salary, or even a job. This situation has driven many women and their daughters to prostitution.

There were increasing exceptions in urban society to the traditional concept of a woman's role. Many women in the upper social levels were well educated. 1950s Colombian Social Classes: Lower Class The lower-class or lower-middle-class women were under far fewer restrictions

Lower-class woman usually had to work to support family.

Formal chaperonage had always been impossible to maintain because of family instability, economic need, and the frequent absence of the husband and father and because moral standards differed somewhat from those of the upper social levels. 1.
