Federación Nacional de Asociaciones de Mujeres Separadas y Divorciadas, located at Calle de Sta Engracia, 128, is an organization founded in 1973 to assist in the rights of women, especially as it relates to gender violence. Initially, it was only for separated women as divorce was not legal at the time. They changed their name in 1980 when divorce became legal. They formally became an associated in 1989, with Ana María Pérez del Campo serving as its first chairwoman. In 1991, they opened a nationally accessible recovery center for women, girls and boys who were victims of sexist violence. Lesbians who have been involved with the organization include Ángeles Álvarez Álvarez, who lived for a short time at the center. After her experience, Álvarez began her campaign against gender violence.
