Lola Iturbe

Lola (Dolores) Iturbe (Barcelona, 1 August 1902 – Gijón, 5 January 1990)[1][2] was a prominent Spanish anarcho-syndicalist, trade unionist, activist, and journalist during the Second Spanish Republic,[3] and a member of the French Resistance during the Battle of France. Working as a maid since childhood, she was self-taught. Iturbe was a member of the Confederación Nacional del Trabajo (CNT). In 1921 she was joined by the anarchist Juan Manuel Molina. She was one of the founders of the anarcho-feminist movement, Mujeres Libres[4] and of the Comité de Milicias Antifascistas during the Spanish Civil War. She chronicled the war for Tierra y Libertad from the Aragón front. At the end of the conflict, she was exiled to France with her companion, Juan Manuel Molina Mateo, or "Juanel", a former secretary-general of the Federación Anarquista Ibérica.[5] Together, they formed part of the French Resistance.
