Federica Montseny is often remembered talking from the drawing room of her Toulousse home. She went to exile to France after the Spanish Civil War. She was a charismatic public speaker for women’s rights and she was also Minister of Health at the beginning of the Spanish Civil War. Her views on female emancipation follow the most important line within Spanish feminism: women’s right to receive a full education. In her youth she saw access to knowledge for women as the key goal of the 20th century.
