María Elena Maseras
María Elena Maseras (25 May 1853 - 4 December 1905), also known as Helena Maseras, was a Spanish woman who was allowed to enlist as a university student with special dispensation in 1872; having been formally admitted to a class in 1875, she was finally allowed to graduate in 1882, which created a precedent allowing women to enroll at universities in Spain from that point on. She studied medicine at the University of Barcelona, but did not sit the last exam to qualify to practice as a physician, and became a teacher instead.
