Beginning with the cultures that would produce the Latin American world, the book traces the effects of conquest, colonization, and settlement on colonial women. The book also examines the expectations, responsibilities, and limitations facing women in their varied roles, stressing the ways in which race, social status, occupation, and space altered women's social and economic realities.

Review:

"This text will be especially useful to teachers of Latin American survey courses. The book rests solidly on the expanding base of articles and books now available to scholars. This is a good first book on the topic for readers at all levels." Choice

"Drawing upon a wealth of scholarship produced in the past thirty years, this engagingly written volume provides the best synthesis to date of its ambitious and wide-ranging topic...Specialists and non-specialists alike will come away from this text with a richer understanding of the opportunities and challenges that shaped the lives of women in the America ruled by Spain and Portugal." Luso-Brazilian Review
