This book is in homage to Flora Tristan, the great pioneer of the first years of the 19th century. She was more than the first feminist, she was the pioneer of the worker's demands against the injustice of the factorie's owners in the industrialization era. She also emphasized a review of the tremendous injustices weighing down upon women and she demanded the elimination of laws that diminished women by making them permanently dependent on men and that subjected women to infamous medieval conditions that are endorsed by tradition and religion. Flora fluorished as a true torch for illuminating awareness during the first half of her century until now. She did so as a real woman and without hating men. She is one of the highest ranking social fighters at the forefront of women's liberation. She suffered incomprehension of the society. She was shooting by a jealous husband, and in addition she suffered the greedy behavior of her uncle when she tried to recover her inheritance in Peru. Flora wrote books asking the UNION of the movement workers and the international union of them. She wrote severe criticism to the British society in Promenades dans London, and she wrote hard criticism to the slave use in Peru.

She explored the increasing gap between rich and poor people, previous to publishing of Friedrich Engel's The Condition of the Working Class in England (1844). She is the first theorist and organizer to claim for social security benefits and limited hours of labour.She demanded the Palaces building to the education and rest of women, and men workers, children, elderly and disabled people.
