Chapter Two Irene Silva de Santolalla and the Well-Constituted Family
History of Family Planning in Twentieth-Century Peru

University of North Carolina Press

This chapter discusses the life of Irene Silva de Santolalla as this illustrates how reproduction concerns social actors besides physicians. It also considers how interventions in Peru became an integral aspect of the first women’s movement in the country. Mrs. Santolalla blended Catholicism and heterosexual procreative marriage as guiding values in her approach to reproduction issues. She emphasized that the notion of a well-constituted family was a product of hard work, national necessity, and female responsibility. When Santolalla became a senator, she supported a lot of legislations including the censorship of children’s books, the establishment of a training center for workers, and the regulation of polluting industries. The movements she pioneered also granted women the right to vote at the age of twenty-one.
