Retrato de una joven, siglo III, MAN

Aware of the need to defend women’s role as active agents in history, the Complutense University of Madrid’s Feminist Research Institute, in collaboration with the Department of Classical Antiquities, has put together two routes about women in Roman Hispania and Greece.

The first of them allows rooms 18-23, dedicated to Roman Hispania, to be visited from a feminist point of view, providing the opportunity to consider women’s legal and social situation, power benchmarks, daily life and leisure.

The second route, which will be about the construction of a women’s world in Ancient Greece, Room 36, will be available in March of 2016.

These readings thus join the project Itinerarios en Feminino (Women’s Routes) promoted by the Ministry of Education, Culture and Sport and the Feminist Research Institute to recover women’s history in museums, together with the Prado Museum, Reina Sofía National Museum and Art Centre, González Martí National Museum of Ceramics and Decorative Arts and the Museo del Traje, Costume Museum.
