In eighteenth-century Spain, translations of women authors (and more generally, their being known -read, but also simply heard of- by the Spanish public) were vital in building of a legitimacy for women's reading, writing and publishing. Due to the lack of intellectual references in their own country, Spanish eighteenth-century women writers had to find predecessors in their contemporaries in Europe, particularly in France, to resignify the figure of the woman writer and intellectual, in an age when discourses on gender and women's presence in new public spaces of sociability and the republic of letters were undergoing significant challenges. The presence of works by female authors translated in Spain, despite their low numbers, is an indication of these challenges.
