520    In 1921 Matilde Hidalgo became the first woman physician 
       to graduate from the Universidad Central in Quito, 
       Ecuador. Hidalgo was also the first woman to vote in a 
       national election and the first to hold public office. 
       Author Kim Clark relates the stories of Matilde Hidalgo 
       and other women who successfully challenged newly 
       instituted Ecuadorian state programs in the wake of the 
       Liberal Revolution of 1895. New laws, while they did not 
       specifically outline women's rights, left loopholes 
       wherein women could contest entry into education systems 
       and certain professions and vote in elections. As Clark 
       demonstrates, many of those who seized these opportunities
       were unattached women who were socially and economically 
       disenfranchised. Political and social changes during the 
       liberal period drew new groups into the workforce. Women 
       found novel opportunities to pursue professions where they
       did not compete directly with men. Training women for work
       meant expanding secular education systems and normal 
       schools. Healthcare initiatives were also introduced that 
       employed and targeted women to reduce infant mortality, 
       eradicate venereal diseases, and regulate prostitution. 
       Many of these state programs attempted to control women's 
       behavior under the guise of morality and honor. Yet 
       highland Ecuadorian women used them to better their lives 
       and to gain professional training, health care, employment,
       and political rights. As they engaged state programs and 
       used them for their own purposes, these women became 
       modernizers and agents of change, winning freedoms for 
       themselves and future generations
