The modernization of Spain undertaken by the Second Republic had as one of its great milestones the achievement of the female vote. Two years after the approval of their right to vote, almost seven million women were able to cast their ballot in a ballot box without restrictions. It happened on November 19, 1933.
The results confirmed the predictions of those who sensed, like Victoria Kent, that the vote of women, influenced by the Church and conservative morality, was going to tip the balance towards the CEDA, a right-wing party (which joined as a bloc). .
There was even the paradox that the great defender of women's suffrage, the secular liberal Clara Campoamor, lost her seat in those unique elections, the first and penultimate in years for women due to the long Franco hiatus that followed.
