At the ceremony, Dr. Magallón presented the keynote: "Universalize female legacies, build a civilizatory rationality: steps towards a culture of peace"[6]

Women contributions to science and peace

The recovery of the history of women, their experiences and their knowledge is a must for building a gender equality. In particular, it is important to deepen the knowledge of Women in science. Much of the literature on this subject comes from the Anglo-Saxon world. This article wants to add the perspective of women scientists in Spain, through the writings published by Carmen Magallón,[7]
