|The image of Spanish women in the pro-Franco non-fiction film during the Civil War|
|This paper aims to analyse the image of Spanish women in the pro-Franco informative cinema during the Civil War. The news bulletins and docummentaries made by the pro-Franco Side display new Spain’s moral ideals and behavior. They show different kinds of women depending on the intentionality of the message they want to transmit.Two attitudes can be observed:
-the active one, represented by women who took part on the War mainly through the Sección Femenina (Femenine Section) and Acción Católica (Catholic Action), who were in charge of supporting tasks.
-and the pasive one, defenseless women who appear as the victims of the struggle, showing the danger that the red’s victory would cause to the population. The War praises these women and identifyies them with Spain. They are considered as a garantee of the most old-fashion traditions.
All the activities made by women on the Franco side reaffirm the allocation of the traditional role of feminine gender during the conflict. In that respect, it is important not only to analyse what was said about the women role during the Civil War, but also to take care of the silent moments in this speech because of its special meaning.
