This article aims to delve into the study of the process of articulation of those social networks that were hatched in the popular neighborhoods of the main Spanish cities during the Francoist dictatorship and that eventually led to the construction of a powerful neighborhood movement. It will try to shed light on those groups of women that, contrary to its obvious role in the process of self-organization and urban mobilization, less attention has been given by the urban social movements historiography. Finally, the article will try to suggest some of the problems associated with women's participation in the neighborhood movement based on a gender perspective, also with a minimal attention to the youth category.
