Editorial Reviews


"The publication of this book marks a watershed for Latin American studies."—H Net Book Review
(H Net Book Review )

"The combination of an analysis of institutional and legislative reforms with their importance for individuals’ lives makes this book requisite and exciting reading for the social and gender history of Latin America, as well as a significant comparative study for scholars of the United States and Europe."—The Americas
(The Americas )

"There is assuredly much for northern feminists (and patriarchs) to learn from this book. Highly recommended."—Choice
(Choice )
