The arguments on which some criticisms of Pardo Bazán are based today,
questioning her feminism, are deeply misguided historically and therefore fail to realize that
Pardo Bazán, it is true, was a conservative and a feminist, but not a conservative feminist. She
was a writer and a Catholic, but not a Catholic writer. Pardo Bazán's feminism used the various
languages available in her time (the same as today's feminisms do) to elaborate a highly radical
and distinctly modern proposal that formed a substantial part of the double debate of the late
nineteenth and early twentieth centuries on the access of the masses to politics and on women's
citizenship. More specifically, on the complex relations between religion, liberalism and early
feminism at a historical crossroads that she perceived, and that was, fundamental. This article is
dedicated to demonstrate it.
