HUNDREDS of Andalucian women who were raped, forced to drink oil or who had their heads shaved are due to be given compensation.
The Junta confirmed that Republicans during the Civil War – who were later persecuted by Franco’s regime – will be entitled to 1,800 euros.
Justice councillor Begona Alvarez explained the money is in memory of the terrible attacks against the honour, image and intimacy of women.
“These women had to somehow support their children when they had a complete lack of healthcare and clothes,” added Alvarez.
Historians estimate that over 600 were raped, kidnapped or murdered in Sevilla alone.
The victims were abused during the period 1938 – 1950.
