According to the Russian Sputnik agency, the first woman was promoted to the rank of general, Patricia Ortega Garcia, promoted to the rank of dean of the military engineering of the ground forces,

Although more than 30 years have passed since women joined the army, Patricia Ortega was looking to reach the rank of general, and achieved it.

General Patricia Ortega, 56, was the first woman to have been promoted to colonel in the ground forces. Ortega entered the military academy in Zaragoza in 1988, when women first entered military schools.

Ortega was born in Madrid in a military family. Before entering the military academy, she studied at the Polytechnic University in Madrid and received a degree in agricultural engineering.

At present, 12.7 percent of the women are serving Spanish army, which is about 15,000 female soldiers.
