Gender, State, and Medicine in Highland Ecuador

Gender, State, and Medicine in Highland Ecuador: Modernizing Women, Modernizing the State, 1895-1950This book was so interesting.  If you are interested in women's issues across the globe, you will want to get a copy of this book and see how one woman, Matilde Hidaglo changed the playing field for women in Ecuador. The author tells the stories of Matilde and other women who forged the path for women in their culture to not only enter the workforce, but have access to education and professions that were previously off limits to the female gender.  The book is well-written and informative.  I found my heart swelling with pride as these women became one of "History's Women".
