Lo que callamos las mujeres is a Mexican anthology television series which deals with the social problems of Mexican society. The show started airing on Azteca 13 as a way to compete with series Mujer Casos De La Vida Real from Canal de las Estrellas. It started airing on the network in 2001 and has since been running continuously.
Lo que callamos las mujeres provides examples of the following tropes:
- Abusive Parents: Given the down-to-earth nature of the series, some of these examples are quite upsetting, especially those aimed for acceptance.
- An Aesop: The series gives aesops in every episode.
- Dueling Works: With Mujer, casos de la vida real.
- Gay Aesop: The episode "Somos todos iguales", is about gay acceptance.
- Gayngst/Trans Tribulations: This is to be expected in episodes featuring acceptance of LGBT people. This is justified, however, since it's set in Mexico.
- Sticky Fingers: In the episode "Nadie mira", a girl named Alejandra is always accused of stealing. However, it's revealed to be her best friend, Susana, who does it to make her parents stop fighting.
- Trans Equals Gay: In the episode "Amo a mi hija o pierdo a mi hijo", Ulises' mother thinks like this regarding her son feeling like a girl.
