The Sub-directorate boasted that forcing male conscientious objectors to do the civil service as well made it mixed-sex and therefore egalitarian (Subdirección de la Condición Femenina 1978). Sacramento Martí and María Salas were among those who made representations to the Sub-directorate (ADM 1978: 28) and the initiative never saw the light of day. Despite such hiccups, several important laws regulating aspects of gender relations were passed in 1978. Law 22/1978 of 26 May abolished Articles 449 and 452 of the Penal Code, eliminating the offence of adultery for women and ‘keeping a mistress’ for men.

The King was presiding over just such an unelected government and continued to do so for another year and a half until after the June 1977 elections. The tone of their protests showed that the women’s movement shared many of the attitudes of the Spanish left at the time, both in their indignation that so few prisoners had been released, and in their sceptical view of Juan Carlos’s intentions (see Preston 1986: 78). The conference’s policyoriented conclusions also denounced the lack of democratic rights, thereby adding its voice to the growing chorus of popular demands for change, and in a key ‘political document’ it expressed the participants’ desire to be ‘coprotagonists in the task of marshalling in democratic change’ and to be part of ‘the alternative being offered to the Spanish public’ at the time (text of conference documents in Moreno 1977: 148, 151).

They played a role on the national and even international stage, but also served the cause of women. Dolores Ibárruri was President of Mujeres Antifascistas (Anti-fascist Women, later Women against War and Fascism) that galvanised women to join the struggle. 1 After the Civil War, the closure and disbanding of all the organisations engaging women, the abolition of legal equality and the introduction into law and social practice of comprehensive and explicit discrimination under the auspices of traditionalist fascist and Catholic thinking were incalculable setbacks to further political participation, as all progress was lost (Scanlon 1990: 96).
