Women Writing on Physical Culture in Pre-Civil War Catalonia
AbstractAnna Maria MartÃnez-Sagi is a largely forgotten but immensely evocative voice in the liberal-progressive press of nineteen-thirtiesâ€™ Spain. In particular, she is remarkable for being one of very few female writers of the time who were also active sportswomen, as well as being fiercely Catalanist and pro-women, in an inclusive sense. This article looks at her contribution to the debate on physical culture in Catalonia at the time, with reference to other writers concerned with the subject, and aims to capture in some small way the energy and humour which characterized her columns and reports.
