1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Virginia McCullough on January 12, 2014
Format: Paperback
I knew about this book and its use in women's studies programs, and in Latin American history courses, but that implies that it could be a dry academic work. It's actually the opposite of dry. Instead, it's a highly readable, absorbing analysis of yet another group of women, in yet another country, going through decades of struggle to gain the most basic rights and autonomy. It also gave me a glimpse into the lives of well-educated, upper class women, who were so much a part of Argentina's suffrage movement, not unlike the movement here in the U.S. The book also focuses on other topics, like women's education, property rights, and working conditions. It sheds light on the complicated history of an important country that I knew little about.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book tells the very compelling story of the rights of women in a society moving through the evolution from colonial times to the aftermath of World War 2. Most important lessson learned was how the women's movement in Argentina was co-opted by the Peron's as part of their own goal of building a personal powerbase, in contrast to a sustainable social change.

My hope is that Dr. Carlson has another book in the works that will take women's issues from the Peron period forward. It is a story that needs to be told.

Format: Paperback
I got this book from the library along with about 20 others for a research project on Eva Peron and her links to the women's movement/feminism. I started skimming and ended up reading every word. Carlson demonstrates a strong command of information, along with a gift for writing that makes it all very interesting to read.
