While comedy is still a very male-dominated environment, there is also an increasing feminist trend in Latin America. This episode of Polivision is about Malena Pichot, a feminist comedian from Argentina. Pichot became a YouTube star with her videos about a break-up with her boyfriend, and later with Cualca, a series of television satiric sketches that criticized sexism, racism, homophobia, and other prejudices.

Created by Paul Alonso, Polivision is a bilingual and multimedia outlet based in Atlanta, Georgia, that covers Latin(o) American and Global Cultures.
