CLARA CAMPOAMOR (2022) SILVER COIN

Clara Campoamor was a Spanish politician, lawyer and writer who defended women's rights.

During the Second Spanish Republic, she created the Women's Republican Union, and was one of the main promoters of women's suffrage in Spain, which was included in the Constitution of 1931 and was exercised for the first time in the 1933 elections.

Because of the Civil War she had to flee Spain and died in exile in Lausanne, Switzerland, in 1972.
