From scientists to saints, the history of Spain is full of influential women. To mark International Women's Day, The Local has put together a list of women who have helped shaped the country. How many do you know?


One of our featured women fought for universal suffrage in Spain in the 1920s.

Another is famous for her tough interview of the staunchly anti-feminist Iranian President  Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

Yet another is a prize-winning scientist who fights for higher research funding in the face of cuts to science spending.
