The "caravan of women"»[edit]

In 1985, Plan made Spanish news[2] since local bachelors organized a "caravan of women" after watching the American 1951 Western Westward the Women. At the moment there were over forty single men and just one single women. Most of the local women had emigrated. An advertisement in the press calling for "women between 20 and 40 with marriage intentions for Pyrenees village" resulted in 33 marriages, revitalizing Plan. Since then, other villages have organized similar "caravans" [3]
