During twelve issues of the Argentine journal Babel, revista de libros (Buenos Aires, 1988-1989), the journalist María Moreno wrote the column "La mujer pública" (The public woman). In a publication whose directors proclaimed the inexistence of the locus of enunciation, to dissociate is a militant act. In this journal, the writings of Moreno occupy- in the sense of usurping a space - the place of the women, one that exists and becomes visible precisely in the violence of the occupation. And this time, the space is not empty. On the contrary: the invader uses the voices of the public women, those who abandoned their private quarters and invaded the scene. Some of them got slaughtered during the attempt. Others managed to survive. And not only did they survive; they have successfully appropriated this destructive language . The locus becomes asymmetric, the word is object and subject, the style is body and gaze: and in this way it procures to "stop being the injury in order to become its observation" (Moreno, 2004).
