Juana Manso

"Vosotros, ricos ¿por què no las educais ilustradas, en vez de criarlas para el goce brutal? Y vosotros, pobres ¿por què les cerrais torpemente la vereda de la industria y el trabajo, y la colocais entre la alternativa de la prostituciòn y la miseria?"

This is a quote from one of the most important educators in Argentina: Juana Manso.
She lived in the 19th century and fought for the rights of women and for the improvement of the educational system, within a democratic frame.
