Lucía Sánchez Saornil, a Spanish anarcha-feminist. She was one of the founders of Mujeres Libres (Free Women), an anarchist organization that fought for equal rights for women in 1930s Spain. She was also a prominent poet and wrote often under a male pseudonym which gave her the freedom to explore taboo themes like homosexuality, which was illegal at the time. Being both an anarchist and a lesbian, she was forced to spend her later years more or less in hiding and had to relocate every few years until her death in 1970.
