This study analyzes the literary importance of the collection of stories entitled "Sara la obrera" (y otros cuentos) (1895) by Puerto Rican author Ana Roque. It is in Spanish. The topic of this work is the conception of 'woman' in the writing of Ana Roque. Its main focus is the repertoire of female characters that, due to their own variety, challenge the uniform aspect of femininity. By underscoring its literary value and including an edition of this text, this book re-inscribes "Sara la obrera" (y otros cuentos) in the area of Puerto Rican and women's literature.
