Wow! - Mexican leader: Machismo hurts women

http://www.suntimes.com/news/world/668227,CST-NWS-mex27...


President Felipe Calderon said Monday said that despite the passage of anti-discrimination laws, millions of women suffer from workplace bias and abuse due to an enduring ''culture of machismo'' in Mexico.

''As a citizen, as a husband, as a father, as president, I am worried and indignant over the mistreatment millions of Mexican women still receive,'' Calderon said.

Last year alone, the president said, more than 30 million Mexican women suffered some type of violence.
