Rector Peset hall of residence hosted last March 12th the presentation of ‘Dones universitàries: un camí cap a la igualtat’ (Women at university: a path towards equality). The presentation was scheduled for 19:30 in the conferences hall. The documentary tells the fight of these women for women’s rights as they tried to gain access to university and to research centres during a historical period ending in the Spanish Civil War.

The documentary shows the struggle of those pioneer women. Without the work of them we would not achieved our current rights and circumstances. Dones universitaries is an optimistic view of the big progress achieved in gender equality and specially, in the presence of women in the university and research centres.

The documentary guides the public through the different time periods university women had to live in their way to equality: the years in the end of XIX century, when they had to surpass many obstacles to access to university, or the years after 1910 when they lived a consolidation phase and they could finally registrate at any higher education centre.

The documentary also shows the key role of the new institutions like Institución Libre de Enseñanza or others created under its influence –such as Junta para la Ampliación de Estudios and the Residencia de Señoritas- which supported the iniciatives of researcher women. Different association were born at a national and international level as well, like Federación Internacional de Mujeres Universitarias or Federación Universitaria Escolar, among others.
