The Sinsombrero 1: La historia merece ser contada entera
The book seeks to recover the memory and avatars of various artists and thinkers of the 27th. Women who took off their hat, this intellectual corset who relegated them to the role of wives and mothers, and participated without complexes in the intellectual life Spanish language school between the 1920s and 1930s. These include: Rosa Chacel, Ernestina de Champourcín, Margarita Gil Roësset, María Teresa León, Maruja Mallo, Concha Méndez, Ángeles Santos or María Zambrano. Free and breaking women also in their private, passionate and exciting lives. they anticipated, and made possible, the women of today.
Las Sinsombrero 2: Ocultas e impecables
It recovers the legacy and ups and downs of those Sinsombrero who, for various reasons, had to adapt to the role that Francoism offered them. During their terrible internal exile, from almost absolute ostracism, they were able to take on a task that has been central to the social, political and cultural history of the country, which has never claimed them. These belligerent women, each brilliant in their discipline, adapted to the circumstances of becoming what they wanted to be, even under other identities or assuming a double life, one for the repressive and impeccable society, and another free but hidden.
