Between 1936 and 1975, the life of women in the Canary Islands unfolded in an environment of cultural and educational control that transcended the religious and socio-political sphere. The Feminine Section, the female branch or version of the Traditionalist Spanish Falange and the Unionist National Offensive Boards, was the institution that over the years legitimized the cultural and educational model for women and conditioned female culture until the languishing of the dictatorship . As a Falangist organization, it undertook the training task by rebuilding the new model of women, based on the traditional discourse, breaking with the cultural pattern of the previous stage. Under the watchful eye of fascism, they transformed the culture built and transmitted through various activities. Its work focused on both formal and non-formal education, channeling all its cultural baggage from educational centers (high school, teacher), Home Schools and Social Service.
