This bibliography lists references to critical and interpretive studies of the literary output of 169 major and minor Hispanic South American women writers active from the turn of the twentieth century to the present. The studies cover all literary genres and take the form of monographs, essays in collections, periodical articles, conference proceedings, and doctoral dissertations. The number of authors included and the number of studies cited challenge the belief that there are few women authors and that criticism has ignored these women.
