In 1933 Aurora Rodríguez shot dead her own daughter Hildegart, while she was sleeping. The young woman, just eighteen years old, was one of the most prominent feminists of the Second Spanish Republic. But she was also a perfectly calculated product designed by her mother for her to be the liberator of women. Aurora’s plans didn’t work out as she’d hoped.
