Celebrating Carolina Beatriz Ângelo

Carolina Beatriz Ângelo was a Portuguese physician, feminist and suffragette who dedicated her life to the fight for the equal treatment of women and children.
On May 28 in 1911, she found a loophole in Portuguese law that enabled her to cast her vote in the year’s elections of the Constituent Assembly, becoming the first female voter in the history of Portugal.
