Masonas. Historia de la masonería femenina - New Book on Feminine Freemasonry
Freemasonry, as a method of knowledge, claims ancient roots, but their societies were, with a few exceptions, predominantly male until 1770 when the Grand Lodge of the Grand Orient in France created the rite of adoption, allowing the participation of women. This crystallized one of the most important moments for society and may be viewed as an early development of a revolution that would upset the established social order: the emancipation of women. In this work, Yolanda Alba provides a fascinating journey through the historical process that led to women of differing social statures to enlist in an influential organization which is still poorly understood, often marked by prejudice and obscurantism.
