Since 1987, Professor of Sociology María Ángeles Durán (Madrid, 1942) has been a Social Sciences researcher at the CSIC. A graduate in Politics and Economics from the Universidad de Madrid and a Doctor in Politics from the Universidad Complutense de Madrid, she undertook postdoctoral studies with a scholarship from the Fulbright Commission, specialising in differential gender socialisation and social inequalities at the Institute for Social Research (ISR) at the University of Michigan. In 1970 she was awarded a grant from the Fundación Juan March to undertake a study of working women in the rural areas of Spain.

The founder of the Instituto Universitario de Estudios de la Mujer (IUEM) at the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid, she was the first woman to hold a Chair of Sociology in Spain. She was the President of the Federación Española de Sociología (Spanish Sociology Federation) and a member of the executive committee of the International Sociological Association. She was the recipient of the Medalla de Oro al Mérito del Trabajo, Premio Mensajeros de la Paz, Premio de la Fundación Catalana del Cáncer (FEFOC) and Premio de Urbanismo “Fernández de los Ríos”, among others. She received honorary doctorates from the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid, Universidad de Valencia, Universidad de Granada and Universidad La Rioja. The Universidad Autónoma de Madrid also named the Premio de Innovación Científica en el Estudio de las Mujeres (Award for Academic Innovation in Women’s Studies) after her. In 2002 she was awarded the Premio Nacional de Investigación en Ciencias Jurídicas, Sociales y Económicas Pascual Madoz and in 2018 received the XIII Premio Clara Campoamor from the Ayuntamiento de Madrid and the Premio Nacional de Sociología y Ciencia Política (National Prize for Sociology and Political Science).

She has published over 200 studies about unpaid work, health, women, inequality and urbanism. Among her most important books are: Mujer y sociedad en España: 1700-1975 (1986, with Rosa María Capel Martínez), La contribución del trabajo no remunerado a la economía española: alternativas metodológicas (2000), Los costes invisibles de la enfermedad (2000) and La investigación sobre el uso del tiempo (2009, with Jesús Rogero García).
