Spanish Colonial Women: Husbands, Wives and Spanish Law in New Mexico

ID : 85106   
« back to classes page
Women’s history is full of surprises.  For instance, during the Spanish Colonial period, Spanish women enjoyed various kinds of protection under the law for which their English-speaking counterparts had to wait nearly two hundred years.  Drawing from original historic documents, historian Linda Tigges will share stories of women who exercised their legal rights in eighteenth century New Mexico, protecting themselves from such concerns as bad marriage, breach of promise for marriage, rape, loss of inheritance, bigamy and aggressive neighbors.
