Can anyone tell me whether that's a praise for the woman or a disparagement of her?

''Lydia Lucas Mims was truly not the sort of creature a man could fail to approve of at least somewhat just as she was truly not the sort of creature a woman could help but despise and vilify straightoff."

    Can we rephrase the second part of the sentence as following? "...she was truly the sort of creature a woman could not help but despise and vilify straightoff."
