"Women's studies professor Bartra writes provocatively and compellingly about the role of women artists in society... Her documentation of Mexican women artists, a group generally ignored in art history scholarship, is important and necessary... Bartra construct[s] the relevant critical structures by which readers can arrive at a fuller and fairer comprehension of the cultural roles and activities of women artists in their societies. Recommended."-J. B. Wolford "Choice "
