Adela Zambudia-Ribero
b. 1854, Cochabamba, Bolivia; d. 1928, Cochabamba, Bolivia

The correct spelling of this name is ADELA ZAMUDIO-RIBERO

Adela Zamudio-Ribero is Bolivia's best-known poet, one of the country's most celebrated intellectuals, and the founder of its feminist movement. In addition to her career as a teacher and writer, Zamudio took an active role in the defense of political and social rights, and supported the Bolivian Liberal Party. Zamudio was especially dedicated to the education and rights of women, teaching to empower Bolivian women when the political and historical climate of the country left them with little to no access to education among other basic social injustices. Zamudio founded the first public school for Bolivian women in her hometown of Cochabamba, where she also established an academy of drawing and painting. Her published works include the poetry collections Poetic Essays (1887) and Rafagas (1912), the novel Intimas (1913) and Short Tales, a collection of short stories published posthumously.
