Exhibition "Women in transition" at Santa Barbara Castle:

Until 7 January, Santa Bárbara Castle will hold the exhibition “Women in transition”, to commemorate the approval of the Spanish Constitution (6 December 1978). This activity is aimed at strengthening a democratic and civic collective memory in which women are present. It has been designed in collaboration with the Democracy Archive, the UA Museum, the University Research Institute for Gender Studies (IUIEG) and the Image Workshop of the UA General Foundation.

The exhibition, which will be open to visitors until 7 January, attempts to spread women’s experiences, initiatives and actions during the Spanish Transition, where the country went from dictatorship under General Franco to the current democracy, and to outline their role in the consolidation of this new political system.

“Women in Transition” is a series of materials meant to be used for teaching and information spreading, which was created under research project “Making History: Gender and Transition in Spain”, and sponsored by the Spanish Ministry of Science and Innovation. Its purpose is to put women in the spotlight of the historiographical and political discourse, right next to men.

By reviving the experiences of women who lived the Spanish Transition we can embrace other points of view  and to better understand our immediate past and current reality.

Members of this research group are senior lecturers Nieves Montesinos Sánchez, Mar Esquembre Valdés, Helena Establier Pérez, Carmen Mañas Viejo and Mónica Moreno Seco. Mariló Berenguer Ros, from the UA Image Workshop (FGUA) provides technical support by producing the audiovisual materials used in the exhibition.
