Some of them are known to the world: Gabriela Mistral and Violeta Parra for example. Some have not yet been recognized even within the borders of their own countries. What all of these women have in common is that each creates her own space in defiance of the limits imposed upon her by society and is able to find freedom through creative imagination. And despite the deep prejudices all the women in this anthology faced during their lifetimes, each was able to overcome obstacles and claim a legitimate place as a writer on a cultural stage.

All of these writers are vitally concerned with the problems women face in Latin America. They have participated in essential ways in the history of their respective countries, in the intellectual history of Latin America, and at the same time, their greatest contribution has been in the sharing of the private details of personal stories, their own and others.
