Well known for his work for prison reform and charitable activities, and very close to krausismo, Concepcion Arenal collaborated with Fernando de Castro in the founding of the Ateneo Art and Literary Ladies in 1869. Despite its limited success, was the forerunner of subsequent initiatives for training and education of women as a first step toward equal rights in the society. As a criminal, involved in the thinking of Pedro Dorado Montero, reformer of criminal law at the time, proposing an educational orientation and not repressive prison system to reform the offender rather than punishment. She was the author of several books, among them Charity, philanthropy and charity (1861), Prison Studies (1877) and Women of the future (1884). He died in Vigo in 1893.

He was born on February 15, 1820 in Adams (Massachusetts). Raised by his father (a schoolteacher), Anthony became a professor and he taught until the age of 30 years.

In 1863, during the American Civil War, founded the Women's Loyal League to fight for the emancipation of slaves. After the period of reconstruction after the Civil War, protested against the violence inflicted on blacks and demanded their full participation in the women's suffrage movement. The struggle for women's rights Anthony's fight for the rights of women began in 1851 when she met Elizabeth Cady Stanton. From 1854 to 1860 both called for the reform of discriminatory laws of the State of New York, giving lectures and organizing a campaign to amend existing legislation. After the war, Anthony and Stanton believed that the primary objective of their struggle should be to achieve universal suffrage, so that in 1869 founded the National Woman Suffrage Association to get a constitutional amendment that would give women that right. Although the 15th Amendment allowed the right to vote of the newly freed slaves, women of all races continued to be excluded. Between 1868 and 1870 Anthony and Stanton published a newspaper, Revolution, which denounced the injustices suffered by women. He traveled to Europe in 1883, and in 1888 participated in the creation of the International Assembly of Women, where 48 countries were represented. 80 years resigned the post of president of the National American Woman Suffrage Association, but continued to participate regularly in their conventions until his death on March 13, 1906 in Rochester (New York).
