Vierges guerrières et mères courage : le panthéon des communistes espagnoles en exil

Abstract : The Spanish female communists reorganized themselves in 1945, during their French exile, in order to mobilize Spanish refugee women in their resistance against the Franco regime. The heroines discussed in their journal, Mujeres Antifascistas Españolas, play an important art in these women's political culture. Accounts where reality and fiction intertwine depict virgin warriors and heroic mothers. Individual or collective heroic representations (the Thirteen Roses from Madrid) are part of the mith withot, however, contradicting rhe traditional gender system. Instead they allow these heroines to enter Spanish history and the collective memory about the opponents to Franco's regime.
