I preferred the "Are Women Human?" speech to the "The Human-Not-Quite-Human" essay solely because I found it more compelling. The second of her essays seemed a bit more bitter. It focused more on the lesser treatment of women, as opposed to looking at what it means to be an "ordinary human being" like the first essay. I find both relevent to today, though--I think we're still asking, or at least confronted with/familiar with, some of the same questions (nearly 70 years later).

I've never read any of Sayers' other work, so I've got nothing with which to compare this writing. Maybe I'll spend a summer reading detective stories.
