International Women’s Day 2021

To celebrate International Women’s Day 2021, here is the 1990 resolution from the Archivo de la Ciudad de Arganda del Rey to create a Consejo Local de la Mujer, the Local Council for Women, to promote the participation of women to all aspects of the public life of the municipality of Arganda. As the late judge of the Supreme US court Ruth Bader Ginsburg said, Women belong in all places where decisions are being made
