This article analyses the portrayal of women by Gabriel Garcia Marquez (1927-2014) in his collection of short stories, (1992). It consists of 12 stories and offers a variety of women in various roles.This helps to answer the question on whether Marquez is sympathetic towards women (housewives, prostitutes, clerks and fortune tellers to name a few). Does he dismiss them as victims? Are they villains? Are the women actively involved in influencing the course of their lives? How representative are they of the Latin American character?
