In this article I analyze the account of a journey the Argentinean writer Eduarda Mansilla made to the United States, which she called Travel Memoirs (1882). Eduarda Mansilla was part of a privileged social class and came from a traditional family belonging to the political elite in Argentina, she exposed a particular point of view on the behavior of the North Americans who she lived with during her travel, unveiling her own conceptions on female social roles.
