Article

María de la O Lejárraga was a Spanish playwright, novelist, essayist, and feminist intellectual of the early twentieth century. She published under her married name, María Martínez Sierra, and also pseudonymously under the full name of her husband, the modernist writer, theater artist, and publisher Gregorio Martínez Sierra. Scholars have recently shown that many works originally attributed to him were actually penned by Lejárraga. She was a strong and unique feminist voice in literary circles and the burgeoning women’s movement in early twentieth-century Spain.
