GIORGI, Ana Laura de. “We Feel Warm On 8 March”. Memories of Uruguay’s Female Former Political Prisoners During the Feminist Spring. Rev. interdiscip. estud. género Col. Méx. [online]. 2022, vol.8, e820.  Epub Aug 15, 2022. ISSN 2395-9185.

This article’s main objective is to analyze how Uruguay’s female former political prisoners have narrated the past and intervened in the public space within the context of a new feminist moment. The text seeks to understand the current feminist movement´s interpellation in a group of political women organized around protests against sexual violence and the construction of a memorial for women political prisoners. To achieve this aim, the article focuses on the places of enunciation and on the approach to a feminist language. Conceptually, it seeks to articulate two fields of study: memory and gender studies. Historical and politically, it undertakes the difficult task of building a solid bridge between the human rights and the feminist movement. The sources are the oral testimonies of female former political prisoners collected in the last two years in Uruguay.

Keywords : memory; political violence; dictatorship; feminism; consciousness.
