Francesca Miller offers an elegant panorama of Latin American women’s movements from the late 19th century to the present . . . There is magic here. Miller is able to capture the passion, drive, beliefs, and commitments of the upper-class reformers, revolutionaries, and global democrats alike. One hears the reverberation of their voices, and finally one understands that these are real militants, not flirts who cajole limited reforms from truculent men . . . The conclusions drawn from this comprehensive study are both accurate and insightful. This book can and should be used in history courses about Latin American women, women in general, U.S.–Latin American diplomatic relations, and the national period surveys. Researchers interested in Latin American women should consult this book for information on current affairs. Miller has made a significant contribution to Latin American history.
