Chapter Summary

This chapter offers segments of an interview with Consuelo, or Chelo, Muñóz Monasterio, a former member of the Sección Femenina (SF) of the Falange. The interview took place on January 13, 1989, when Spain's first elected socialist government was in power. It was organized around several main themes. In a discussion of her family background, Chelo described what kind of youth were attracted to the Falange and why. Then, as she recounted how she came into contact with the Falange and its women's support group, the SF, she repeatedly underscored the importance of José Antonio Primo de Rivera, the founder of the Falange, and his sister Pilar Primo de Rivera, as models for youth. Chelo's fractured life is not unique, of course; its disruptions were multiplied exponentially not only during Spain's upheaval but repeated worldwide.

Keywords: Chelo Muñóz Monasterio; Falange; José Antonio Primo de Rivera; Pilar Primo de Rivera; Sección Femenina (SF); Spain
