This text raises the analysis of historical context and biographical characterization of several women considered as “republican heroines”. This women died because of their anti-Franco identity and their link with Spanish second Republic; that is, because of their political commitment and their defence of freedom. Women who died because of the same Franco violence during both the civil war and the repression developed after the war and the victory of the revolted. The case of photographer Gerda Taro, Robert Capa’s colleague, is analyzed like this; with another few cases of women who died in the postwar, executed because of their antifascist militancy, like Águeda Campos, POUM’s militant executed in 1941, or María Pérez Lacruz, “La Jabalina”, young libertarian executed in 1942.
