The concept of citizenship was mutilated when it was born. Its founding document, the Declaration of the Rights of Man and the Citizen, excludes women as the depositaries of these rights, not only because they are not mentioned, but also because their defenders were so fiercely opposed that Olympe de Gouges, who drew up the Declaration of the Rights of Women and the Female Citizen, died on the guillotine in 1793. Since then, women have protagonised a bloodless revolution that has radically transformed society, in its acceptance of women as subjects of equal nature and rights as men. The development and in-depth analysis of citizenship today has to be carried out from the perspective of the current situation of women, the importance of what they do, and also, from the perspectives that are created because of migratory movements, in which women participate massively.
