Mural en Honor a Mujeres Emblemáticas de El Salvador

Antonia Navarro
Primera mujer graduada de la Universidad de El Salvavador y primera doctora de Centroamérica en un área que en esa época era exclusiva de los hombres, la ingeniería topográfica. Se graduó en 1889, su tesis doctoral en astronomía la denominó "La Luna de las Mieses". Murió a los 21 años de edad.

María Isabel Rodríguez
Primera Mujer Rectora de la UES de 1999 a 2003 y de 2003 a 2007. Primera mujer graduada de la Facultad de Medicina de la Universidad de El Salvador en 1949 con post grado en Cardiología y Fisiología. Primera mujer Decana de la Facultad de Medicina de la UES de 1967 a 1971. De 2009 a la fecha Ministra de Salud.

Prudencia Ayala
Primera aspirante a la Presidencia Salvadoreña e Hispanoamericana. Su aspiración como candidata en 1930 marcó la historia en El Salvador, porque lo hace cuando la legislación salvadoreña no permitía el voto femenino. No se tiene con constancia de su participación en el levantamiento campesino de 1932, pero se cree que colaboró.
