The exhibition follows the trace of 20 profiles of exiled women from different political, professional and social trajectories, an approach to republican exile through a gender perspective.

The exiled women of 1939 struggled against a double vulnerability, as women and as political refugees, with the resources that each one had at their disposal: training, political militancy, personal networks, economic resources... But beyond what singled them out, they shared a common way of seeing the world —debtor of the social and civil rights achieved during the Republic— and made mutual support, solidarity and cooperation the basic strategies for survival, in the hardest moments, and resilience and empowerment, after.

Throughout the exhibition we delve into the life stories of the exiles and their capacity for action, will and power to transform their own lives and those around them. We call and make visible several generations of women who maintained their commitment and conviction, despite everything and despite so much.

The present memory of the exiles, that of those who came to the exhibition and many more that will continue to be made visible and studied in the coming years, thus becomes an irreplaceable part of our democratic memory.
