Women’s Position During the Franco Dictatorship

Last 20th of May, I spoke about women’s position during the Franco dictatorship in Spain. It happened at La Academia, a language school in Fukuoka, sponsored by Fukuoka’s Association of Friends of Spain.

La Academia

I talked in Japanese about this period in Spanish history for almost two hours, from the most general things to the most feminine facts. We had a great conversation and learnt a lot –of course I did learn too.

In case you’d like to download it, here’s a document written in Japanese with an outline of the talk and some pictures so that you can get into the context: La mujer en el franquismo.pdf.
