Abortion, Militancy and Subjectivity

Marcela Boni Evangelista About the author

Abstract

The present article intends to discuss the abortion issue based on the two women activists´s life narratives who are dedicated to the struggle for the women´s rights in different social movements. Through the theoretical and methodological contributions of oral history, interviews were carried out, which later underwent a process of textual elaboration that resulted in the material collected, which was the basis for the reflections presented. The proposed analysis seeks to address the relationships between militancy and subjectivity and how discussions on abortion are feasible beyond numbers.
