Description
Summary:In 2017, the voices of daughters of repressors emerged on the Argentine public scene, questioning the criminal actions of their parents during the last military dictatorship. Some of these daughters -along with sons and other relatives- formed the collective Historias desobedientes, which intervenes in the public space through different forms of speaking that involve the defense of human rights, memory and justice. These daughters elaborate narratives crossed by feminist perspectives that allow them to weave resistance to the mandates of silence and family legacies. By making their personal, family and collective experiences visible, they provide hitherto unknown data about the universe of everyday life of dictatorship’s agents. In this article, first, I refer to the process of taking the floor and breaking the pact of silence, as a first step towards moving away from family values. Second, I track descriptions of domination and glimpses of resistance within the family universe. Finally, I analyze the constitution of ties and genealogies of women as a novel modality of ethical-political bond.
