MARCHANTE CASTELLANOS, Pilar  and  MERCHAN GONZALEZ, Francisco. First female university graduates in Pharmacy in Cuba. Rev Cubana Farm [online]. 2012, vol.46, n.1, pp.117-126. ISSN 0034-7515.

Several circumstances linked to the incorporation of females to university studies in Cuba, after overcoming various obstacles that had denied their access to intellectual development and supported their only responsibility as mothers and housekeepers, were presented in this paper. Although the first and only Cuban university during the colonial times had been founded in 1728, it was the 1883-1884 academic course the one which marked the beginning of the female entrance into the university classrooms. There were mentioned the female students registered in that course and the first ones who graduated as Bachelors of Pharmacy and Doctors of Pharmacy. Reference was also made to the first female pharmacists who validated their titles given abroad; the first women that had held teaching post at the Cuban university and the pioneers in exercising the profession.

Keywords : first Cuban female pharmacists; first female graduates in pharmacy; first female university students in Cuba.
