"Mujeres: de la tutela a la palabra" analyzes French novels published in 1909 by The Nation Library to demonstrate how fiction created a European ideal of women. These novels, under the prestige of French culture, replicated ideals forged by the expectations of men who were willing to exert violence to keep male empowerment alive, and erode advances in female empowerment. This book also responds to a current concern: the femicides that have occurred in Argentina, which are a continued symptom of male domination over women.
