My friend also noted that there is a small-town mentality there, with very little interest of what’s going on outside of Belize. There are women in Belize who do not accept the patriarchal paradigm and are working so that the Belizean society will change.
There has been internal armed conflict in past decades, and women, most of the indigenous, were victims of sexual, physical and psychological violence during all those years.
Statistics show that between 2001 and May 2009, there have been more than 1,500 women murdered and only in 14 of those cases were the perpetrators brought justice.
This impunity only serves to reinforce the patriarchal hierarchy in the Guatemalan family. Guatemalan women face violence on the street, in the workplace and at home.
Guatemalan women, in spite of the constant threat of violence, continue to struggle to have their voices heard.

Dating Latin American Women has its challenges because most of Latin America women live under a patriarchal system where the man rules.
Whether it’s government, jobs, businesses or families, the man is usually at the head, and it is no different for Belizean women.
Belize was under British rule since 1638 or thereabout until becoming independent in 1981, but women’s liberation did not come with autonomy from the British empire.
Belize has a small population, a little over 300 thousand people and the ethnic makeup is mainly Mestizo and Creole.
If you like dark, exotic women who speak English (it is the official language), then Belize is the country where you should look for your Latin American woman.
As far as dating a woman from Belize is concerned, keep in mind that it is a very small country and relatively isolated.
