How men in Latin America are unlearning machismo

Through workshops, hotlines, and video training organizations and groups in Latin America are working to fight against 'machista,' which translates to sexist attitudes held by men in regard to women. In Colombia, the European Union has helped to set up The National School for the Unlearning of Machismo (ENDEMA) which helps viewers identify sexist attitudes in videos illustrating everyday situations. In Mexico, Gendes, an organization supporting civil rights, holds group therapy sessions, and provides a hotline for men to call when they feel they're about to become violent.
