Since the conquest of "Latin" American territories, images emerged which represented the continent as feminine and, therefore, available and exploitable. To this day , the image of a European "Coloniality of Gender" has had lasting consequences. Works of art from Latin America, in particular, show that gender relations are diverse and controversial negotiations. Plays and lectures give an insight into the gender images in and from Latin American countries.
