Abstract

Cagigal was the most important and decisive intellectual in physical and sports education in Spain. This research studies his intellectual work on the concept of women and their role in sport. The results show that, while being a man of his time when gender stereotypes were well established, he knew and/or wanted to evolve in his last years towards a position of respect for the female sex and towards their inclusion, on equal terms, in the field of sport.
