Mexico - Old fonds of the historical archive at Colegio de Vizcaínas: women's education and support in the history of the world

Represents a very rich and highly significant source to learn about the behavior, conducts and thought related to women, their education and protection during more than three hundred years of historical evolution. Upon reading about the details of daily life of the women a variety of subjects can be discovered that among others, have to do with politics, economy, religion or art and therefore constitute a historical legacy of incalculable value.
