  • Benalmádena town hall has christened the walkways in La Paloma Park with the names of ten of Spain's most celebrated twentieth-century female writers

Benalmádena town hall has christened the walkways in La Paloma Park with the names of ten of Spain's most celebrated twentieth-century female writers. Ten hand-painted plaques - designed to look like open books - have been installed on the walkways, each one inscribed with the name of a recognised literary figure. These include María Zambrano, Concha Méndez, Ángeles Santos, Elizabeth Mulder and Teresa León Goyri. The women, all part of the artistic movement known as the 'Generation of 27', were chosen for their notable contribution to Spanish culture and their commitment to equality for women.

As part of Benalmádena town hall's commitment to effective equality, the project is designed to promote fairness and to give prominence to women and their rights.

The inauguration was attended by the mayor of Benalmádena, Víctor Navas, who said: “We must acknowledge the great efforts and achievements harvested by these illustrious pioneers in the struggle for equality. We will continue to do as much as possible in order to highlight the ground-breaking achievements they secured.”
