Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Esmeralda Arboleda Cadavid (September 1, 1921 - April 16, 1997) was a Colombian activist, politician and diplomat, a leader of the women's suffrage movement in Colombia and the first woman to ever be elected to the Congress of Colombia, former Ambassador to Austria and Yugoslavia, and former Minister of Communications. As a member of the Colombian Constituent Assembly of 1954, she approved the Legislative Act No. 3, which granted women the right to vote. Esmeralda Arboleda Cadavid was born on Palmira, Valle del Cauca, Colombia on September 1, 1921 to Fernando Arboleda L pez and Rosa Cadavid Medina. She was one of many sisters, Violeta Arboleta, Puma Arboleta, Sophie Arboleta, and Mirella Arboleta. She studied at a technical school in the city of Pereira, but moved to Bogot at the behest of her mother so she could study in an academic school. Education for women was difficult at this time, only in 1934 were women allowed to pursue higher education and enter universities, but Arboleda supported by her mother was able to enroll in the University of Cauca at the Faculty of Law in 1939, and becoming the first graduate lawyer of that institution.show more
