Tecido Resistente

Tecido Resistente is the story of the hundreds of woman that completely changed the economy and social organization of a whole region at the beginning of the 20th century in Galicia. They were 14 years old when they began to work in yarns and weaves of Vilasantar. They charged 37 pesetas a week. With these earnings they stink the family economy. Soon they discovered that the fixed salary they received was something more than just a few notes: it was their independence, or female empowerment even before that concept reached Galicia. Their incorporation into paid and industrial work changed the way they organized the society in which they lived. Now, more than 50 years after the factory, we have chosen this story through the voice of the protagonists.
