An Argentinian radio presenter has been instructed to co-host his show alongside a feminist every week for five months after being accused of sexism.

Angel Etchecopar is not allowed to critise his guests or interrupt them as part of the programme which is due to begin in March for a five month period.

He has been accused of using his show on Argentina’s Radio 10, El Angel Del Nodia to attack feminists and has described them as ‘feminazis’ and ‘disgusting people’, according to French newspaper Le Monde. 

Etchecopar was charged with ‘disrespectful, insulting, denigrating and discriminatory’ outbursts against women.

However the case against him was dropped after Etchecopar managed to convince a female judge of his remorse, and she decided to opt for a probation-based solution.  

Prosecutor Federico Vilalba Diaz said that Etchecopar appeared repentant and nothing like the media personality he portrays, reported La Nacion. 

A different gender specialist will appear on the show each week and they will discuss a list of topics chosen by gender violence prosecutor Veronica Guagnino.

Mr Diaz said: ‘It seemed important to me that the listeners of Baby Etchecopar could listen to other voices and other explanations, different from the ones they are used to. It is a non-punitive idea, but one that aims to improve tolerance.’

As part of the agreement Etchecopar is also banned from making offensive remarks about women as well as having to donate 15,000 pesos ($756) to the Catholic Charity Association Caritas. 

If any of these clauses are broken then the agreement will be ended and he will face reprosecution.
