The Franco regime wanted to support its ideology on a key column: the family. The subjugation of women in all aspects was essential and a framework of legal, educational, social, family and work limitations was set in order to cut freedoms. For a woman, having a child out of wedlock meant, in that context suffering the most cruel humiliations from a society subdued to ultra conservative Catholic codes of conduct that punished severely any attitude that was out of the norm.
