Amistad Universitaria was a Spanish cultural association of professional women in universities from 1955 to 1974. It owes its founding to professor Ángeles Galino Carrillo, Consuelo Sanz Pastor, director of the Cerralbo Museum, and María Salas Larrazábal, professor and journalist. The association was conceived to give continuity to another university organisation that was established in the 1930s, Liga Femenina de Orientación y Cultura, which was part of the Asociación Católica Institución Teresiana. Among its purposes, laid down in the statutes, were those of completing professional education and to resolving problems that could arise during women’s careers. Over two decades, it developed a programme of cultural activities and contributed to building relations between women who promoted a feminism based on the promotion women in cultural and professional circles. Using archive material, this paper analyses the work of the association and its impact on Spanish universities
