BARRANCOS, Dora  and  ROSEMBERG, Patricia. Abortion, sorority and body autonomy: a conversation with Mónica Macha, representative in the Argentine Chamber of Deputies. Salud colect. [online]. 2018, vol.14, n.3, pp.447-460. ISSN 1669-2381.

Just days after the Argentine Chamber of Deputies approved the bill on the Voluntary Termination of Pregnancy, Salud Colectiva asked Dora Barrancos and Patricia Rosemberg to converse with representative Mónica Macha regarding the events leading up to the Chamber’s approval of the bill. In the conversation other themes emerged in connection to the energy that flooded the streets all over the country throughout the year. The three women highlighted the activism and sorority present inside and outside of the chamber, the central role of youth, “the revolution of the daughters,” the discussion of body autonomy, the role of doctors and how the struggle became a cultural change from which there is no return. This conversation narrates a historical moment in the words of some of its actors.
