Abstract

During the 19th and 20th centuries, Spanish women struggled to maintain the rights and independence they deserve. In present day, this challenge persists. Though much progress has been made, the author posits that the position of Spanish women has also regressed in many ways. Using the novels Insolacion by Emilia Pardo Bazan and Nada by Carmen Laforet as the analyzed texts, the author provides evidence to prove that overall, Spanish women have not experienced the true freedom and equality they are entitled to.
