Las sinsombrero: The women who dared
During the 1920s and 30s, a daring group of Spanish women openly defied tradition and expectation by becoming outstanding artists, thinkers and leaders. For a brief moment in history, they were integrated in the same intellectual and social circles with men and gained the respect and recognition for their contributions. This was not to last, as the Spanish Civil War would soon dissolve and scatter this group of outstanding women. The purpose of this talk is to shed light into their identities, contributions and individual journeys.
