"Women through Women's Eyes" draws from ten insightful accounts by female visitors to Latin America in the nineteenth century. Organized chronologically, the accounts range in time from the independence period to the end of the century.

Questions of gender difference, family life, religion, women's labor, and education are addressed, in addition to the attitudes, customs, practices, and interrelationships of men and women within the structure of Latin American societies. "Women through Women's Eyes" documents class, racial, ethnic, and geographic differences, and touches upon the nature of cross-cultural relations between Latin American and foreign visitors.
