Friends of History Lecture Series
New Mexico History Museum
12:00 PM - 1:00 PM
Spanish Colonial Women and the Law: Complaints, Lawsuits and Criminal Behavior

Speaker: Dr. Linda Tigges, Author, and retired City of Santa Fe land planner.

Women in early eighteenth century Spanish Colonial New Mexico had rights and privileges that were not enjoyed by other women in North America until the late nineteenth century. Under Spanish law women were considered separate entities and valuable members of Spanish society. Dr. Tigges’s lecture will show that they could own property, inherit in their own name, and act as court witnesses. In particular, they could make accusations and denunciations to the local alcalde mayor and governor, which they frequently did.  In doing so, these Spanish colonial women provided an important legacy for future generations.
