Since prehistoric times, with the exception of cultures in which matriarchy governed family activities, the role of women has been relegated to that of men.

Since the 19th century, some groups of women began the struggle for equality laws to exist, in terms of rights such as voting or access to higher education.

As a recognition of the path traveled by Ecuadorian women during the late twentieth century to achieve the same opportunities as men, the Women's Room of the House of Ecuadorian Culture presents an exhibition on representative women, women of mettle and soul.

The exhibition called "Woman who works, thinks and dreams" by the artist Daymar Briceño gathers some of the most important women in Ecuador, the first part is a collage of articles related to news about women famous for their thought, genius and creativity .

At the bottom of the exhibition you can see an audio with phrases from women such as: Tránsito Amamguaña, Emma Watson, Rosalía Arteaga, Nina Pacari, Malala, Nela Martínez, among others.

We invite you to take a tour of this room until March 11, in this exhibition that is a tribute to all the women who make this world go round.
