Chapter Summary

This chapter analyzes female public activity from two autobiographical narrations. Women of very different characteristics have been interviewed: Falangists, Basque nationalists, or Republicans. In the chapter, two exiled Republican women (Juana Francisca Rubio and Dolores Martí Domenech) narrate their individual female perspective of their experiences during the Republic and the Spanish Civil War. In this tumultuous period many women like Juana and Dolores participated in sociocultural activities in favor of the Republic, although their contributions were very different, as was their presence in the public sphere. Dolores was an active member of the PSUC and later, in France, she was one of the promoters of cultural activity in the shelter with her news broadcast "Radio Calamidad". The value of their words resides predominantly in their testimonies, which help us build a portion of history for the Republican period and the women who lived through it in Spain at the time.

Keywords: Basque nationalists; Dolores Martí Domenech; Falangists; Juana Francisca Rubio; Radio Calamidad; Republicans; Spanish Civil War
