    1. En general es un libro valioso que reta a repensar la diferencia sexua en la historia. Sus categorias (clase, trabajo, género en la historia, igualdad y diferencia) son cuidadosamente construidas y revisadas. La agudeza analítica de la autora es indudable y la selección de textos es precisa e ilustrativa a la vez. Su único fallo: sus incontables rodeos que marean al lector bajo una lluvia de tecnicismoa.
