Feminism History in Argentina

Traditionally, the legal position of women in Argentine was based on Spanish Law, which in turn was based on Roman law, in which women were considered property of the men in the family, single women under the authority of their fathers and married women of their husbands. The Moorish tradition of secluding women which was strong, especially in southern Spain, from centuries of Moorish rule, was not always attainable in colonial Argentina, but was perceived by many as an ideal; and women were not allowed to hold any political or administrative positions in the colony. Families attempted to get their daughters married at between fifteen and eighteen years of age, often to a man fifteen to thirty years her senior. Women could not inherit land grants under the colonial system, nor could widows become heads of their estates. In order to avoid property confiscation, women were under pressure to remarry. Even after independence from Spain, when inheritance laws became more equitable, families found ways to circumvent them in order to give the bulk of the estates to male heirs, in order to assure that the wealth stayed within the patrimony.
