Clara Campoamor was the politician who on October 1, 1931 defended and managed to get women's suffrage approved in Congress in Spain. His whole life reflects one achievement after another, an extraordinary self-improvement.
He was born in Madrid in the convulsive and depressed Spain of 1898. He had to work from the age of ten, due to the death of his father, while self-training as best he could. In 1909, when she turned 19, the first oppositions to female telegraph assistants were called: the first telegraphist entered what we now know as the Post Office in 1881. Clara thus obtained a place in the first state company that incorporated women into its workforce. In his destinations of Zaragoza and San Sebastián he studied high school and prepared oppositions to the Ministry of Public Instruction: he achieved the first place.
She combined her work there with another in the newspaper La Tribuna, which gathered around her numerous intellectuals, including feminist women and suffragettes, which Clara frequented. The great debate of the time was equal rights, and especially universal suffrage, and with an interest in politics and law already unstoppable Clara became one of the first Spanish lawyers in 1924, with 36 years. Her goal was the defense of women's rights, and she demonstrated this when she was elected deputy for Madrid in 1931 for the Radical Republican Party.
In front of her, with the opposite thesis, another woman with an exceptional career, Victoria Kent, the first to be registered as a lawyer in Madrid. Clara had been the second. Interestingly, women could be elected to political office, but they could not vote. Although support was very divided, Clara won the debate, and Spanish women were able to vote in the 1933 elections, although for a short time: the Civil War would deprive them of that right and forced her into exile for life.
He lived for some time in Buenos Aires; she then returned to Europe and worked as a lawyer in Switzerland. He died there in 1972; Recognized today as an undoubted reference, it is still moving to hear the clarity and brilliance with which she defended her cause in that decisive debate of 1931.
