She says: Something was wrong in a society where a person was questioned because she was a woman. She works for the Museo Argentino de Artistas Plásticas (Argentine Museum of Women Artists), and the Association of Friends of the Museum.

In her work, Silvia Ocampo has captured, with vitality and sensitivity, the social problems of her time. After graduating as a professor of Fine Arts, she joined the art studio of master Demetrio Urruchúa and took charge of it when, in 1955, the master was captured.

She gave birth to the Del Plata Group. As a painter and designer, Silvia felt excluded “for being a woman.” In reaction to that, she made a study of the situation faced by professional women and wrote two essays on the matter. She also founded a virtual museum of women artists.

Her book – Silvia Vera Ocampo: Los Roles Femenino Y Masculino, 1987, 1, ISBN 9509432725.
