GARCIA GARCIA, Inmaculada  and  GOZALBES CRAVIOTO, Enrique. The cántabras women's labour in the work of Estrabón. Index Enferm [online]. 2010, vol.19, n.1, pp.64-68. ISSN 1699-5988.

The text of the Greek geographer Strabon, refers to the labour of the women Cantabrians (Hispanic Pre-roman people) has deserved usually the attention of the investigations. The mention of Strabon has been considered generally as a proof of the possible recent existence of a matriarchy between the Cantabrians people. In this project this assessment is discussed and the conclusions is that more probability, the Strabon's allusion was a product of the incomprehension of the customs and the rites of the Cantabrians people, as well as the result of the ethnocentric view characteristic of the Greek-Romans writers.

Keywords : Labour; Hispanic; Pre-Romans; Rites; Matriarchy.
