The end of machismo in Argentina?

Argentine women are making waves in science, politics and sports journalism. The article features Viviana Vila, Argentina’s first football commentator. She talks about being a woman while working in a male dominated profession. The article also explores which cultural barriers still prevent women from participating as equals in Argentine society. Activist Veronica Lemi explains why she launched a campaign to raise awareness about discrimination of women on the streets of Buenos Aires. The article was published in Amsterdam daily newspaper Het Parool. You can read the entire article on Blendle (€ 0,25). Text by Remi Lehmann, photo by Thomas Seegers.
