The Free Athenian of Bebnalmadena has the pleasure of inviting you to your next gathering in which the figure of "CARMEN DE BURGOS (COLOMBINE), Andalusian, advanced of feminism, writer and not yet well known among us will be glossed. de Rosa Ballesteros Garcia, Doctor in History and specialized in Gender.


Carmen de Burgos "Colombine" (Almería, 1867-Madrid, 1932). Teacher, journalist, writer, novelist, social activist and feminist, ateneist, masone and, above all, pioneer in our country at a time when women were kept in the shadow of man: father, husband or any male member of the family. She was one of the women who managed to have a "curriculum" of her own.

He wrote from what today would be called a gender perspective long before that concept existed. He was aware of the power that came with reaching readers. One of his first reports dealt with the situation of children in prisons. That was just the beginning of a neat career: more than a hundred short novels, a dozen long essays, translations, nearly 10,000 press articles ...

He died "with his boots on" while lecturing in defense of women. He died saying: "I die happy because I die republican". She was the first woman that the Francoist dictatorship included in her "black list" of "non gratos" characters.
