In 1927 the Great Female Exhibition was held in Chile within the framework of the fiftieth anniversary of the Amunátegui Decree (1877), a precept that allowed women to go to university. The Exhibition was the result of a series of initiatives by the high bourgeoisie that began in 1914 with the creation of women's organizations such as the Women's Art Society.
Twelve years later, in 1939, the MEMCH —Pro Emancipation Movement of Women in Chile— held the Feminine Activities exhibition, conceived as a response to previous experiences led by the elite, and focused on the political and social aspirations of women.
