Résumé

The main objective of this issue is to gather works of researchers from different countries, diverse fields of knowledge and several theoretical as well as methodological perspectives, so as to feed the debate on the issues in keeping with female participation during the dictatorships of Latin America. Contributions should tackle the subject of women activists but they may also consider in a less strict sense the link between women and activism. We wish to address the issue of activism in a broad sense to include a wide range of social movements in which women have played a significant role.

Argument

The ORDA Journal is preparing a special issue for 2017 on « Women and political activism against Latin American dictatorships ».

The main objective of this issue is to gather works of researchers from different countries, diverse fields of knowledge and several theoretical as well as methodological perspectives so as to feed the debate on the issues in keeping with female participation during the dictatorships of Latin America. Following the periodization proposed by the historian Joana Maria Pedro, we try to determine the impact of activism against dictatorships upon several forms of feminism [PEDRO and WOLFF, 2010]. Exile can also transform one’s relation to gender when one can appropriate new practices that are transferred in a second time to Latin America [FRANCO, 2005]. Contributions should tackle the subject of women activists but they may also consider in a less strict sense the link between women and activism. We wish to address the issue of activism in a broad sense to include a wide range of social movements in which women have played a significant role. Contributors may consider one of the following topics (this list is merely indicative) : women and labour movements, the role of feminist action in the process toward amnesty, the place of female organizations in the democratic transition and under the Constitution period, the politic commitment of the abuelas and madres in Argentina , etc.
