Cecilia Böhl de Faber (1796-1887) enlightened writer
Cecilia Böhl de Faber used a male pseudonym, Fernán Caballero, to be able to publish her novels and shared with other women from the enlightened, bourgeois elite the struggle for coeducation. As a supporter of the educational proposal by the Institución Libre de Enseñanza (Free Education Institution) between 1876 and 1938, she supported Emilia Pardo Bazán, also a writer, who proposed in1892 coeducation at all levels to overcome the division of tasks assigned to men and women. At the time, the proposal met with no success.
