 Fuenlabrada Campus Library

Nothing but feminism, nothing less than equality

The Fuenlabrada Campus library has prepared a point of interest with works on feminism and gender equality throughout history. In it they have collected fundamental treatises on feminism along with manuals from different disciplines with a gender perspective. Along with the bibliographic material, they have selected films from their documentary collection that deal with women's stories or written and/or directed by women. They have also designed a bookmark to commemorate this day that can be found in the management building and in the library of the Fuenlabrada campus.

Women and literature

At the Madrid Campus Library we celebrate Women's Day with a point of interest Women and literature where we show a selection of recent works written by women, some new and others already established. Our leisure collection has grown this last year and many of the new acquisitions are written by women. Some books are very well known, but we also give space to other works that are less chosen from the catalogs of prestigious publishers such as Salamandra, Errata Naturae, Impedimenta, Nórdica, Libros del Asteroide or Cabaret Voltaire, undoubtedly of great literary quality. Among the established authors we have highlighted the French writer Annie Ernaux, awarded the Nobel Prize in 2022 not only for her literary merit, which is indisputable, but because each of her works contains a certain autobiographical character and focuses on and shows the role of women. in society and the roles with which she has had to survive and that the author herself defines as a mixture of literature, sociology and history and we find them especially appropriate readings to celebrate this March 8, International Women's Day.

And also on the 14th, International Mathematics Day to promote education in this discipline, and celebrate the achievements of mathematicians from around the world. Both celebrations invite us to become aware, to recognize the achievements and challenges present in these areas and to work together towards a more equitable and better future for all.
