Ann Pescatello is associate professor of history at Florida International University.
“The twelve articles included in Female and Male in Latin America are an excellent collection of writings on topics ranging from literary archetypes and female role alternatives to domestic service as a channel of upward mobility for the lower-class woman. . . . essays of great value.”—Red River Valley Historical Journal of World History

“This splendidly edited volume was written by qualified contributors from various disciplines with extensive research and personal experience. . . . Interesting to anyone who is in the field of Latin American studies or concerned with the role of women today.”—The Family Coordinator

“A milestone in both Women’s Studies and Latin American historical research, drawing together articles on the subject in a systematic way. . . . Pescatello delimited the areas of her subject matter, Latin American women, in an authoritative manner that has, to a large extent, determined the field.”—Journal of the West

“Provides much new information and a fresh approach to the study of women in Latin America.”—American Historical Review
