This book is a history of women, radio, and the gendered
constructions of voice and sound in Buenos Aires, Argentina, and
Montevideo, Uruguay. Through the stories of five women and one
radio station, this study makes a substantial theoretical
contribution to the study of gender, mass media, and political
culture and expands our knowledge of these issues beyond the US and
Western Europe. Included here is a study of the first all-women's
radio station in the Western Hemisphere, an Argentine comedian
known as 'Chaplin in Skirts', an author of titillating dramatic
serials and, of course, Argentine First Lady 'Evita' Peron. Through
the concept of the gendered soundscape, this study integrates sound
studies and gender history in new ways, asking readers to consider
both the female voice in history and the sonic dimensions of
