Influences {{ safesubst:#invoke:Unsubst||$N=POV |date=__DATE__ |$B= {{#invoke:Message box|ambox}} }} Machismo has been influenced and supported by many different factors. The Catholic religion plays a vital role to many within the Spanish community. For this reason the male dominated world that is often referenced in the Bible is seen among the people. Examples can be found throughout the Bible showing how women should be submissive to their husbands: “Unto the woman he said, I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children; and thy desire [shall be] to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee” (Genesis 3:16).<ref></ref> The ideologies that the man is stronger, the moneymaker, and the protector all back up the mindset that wives must listen to the husband.

Masculinity in Context: Chile

Women’s presence in social settings is not prominent, so men’s dominance and inevitable homosocial interactions create kinship and brotherhood amongst the men. Exploitation of masculinity through the context of miners is prominent and embodied by Chilean males.

Because Chile is a traditional, Roman Catholic dominated society, comfort with androgyny is becoming more accepted and identifiable. More of the modern elite women take on forms of masculinity in their education attainments and careers.{{ safesubst:#invoke:Unsubst||date=__DATE__ |$B= {{#invoke:Category handler|main}}{{#invoke:Category handler|main}}[citation needed] }}
