"
Also throughout his career he made an important work of dissemination of the history of women in Lorca through multiple historical research works.
Sala Vallejo was also councilor and deputy mayor in charge of Social Welfare of the City of Lorca.
She was a preacher in 2015, of the Feasts of San Clemente, of the Holy Week in Lorca in 2004 and of the celebrations of the Counselor in 2007, a Lorcan district with a special affection.
In 2013, he received the 'March 8 Award' from the Federation of Women's Organizations of Lorca.
Mateos has advanced that "from the Consororio lorquino it is being studied to carry out a recognition of the figure of Rosalía Sala Vallejo".
