Abstract

The article is focused on a specific case study of “a human rights woman activist” in El Salvador during the last authoritarian government (1976-1992): the lawyer Marianela García Villas. Marianela’s history, as human rights (HRs) activist, raises a fundamental question on how a woman could relate with a death scenario and a death context in her HRs political care. In her activity of reconstruction of death bodies of people who did not even have the dignity of death, Marianela has always worked with a HRs approach and for the positive statement of the right to life “as right of piece of bread, a roof and a book”, and so anticipating the HRs interdependence and interconnection interpretation. Her potential motherhood, as a woman, was projected over a private sphere towards the promotion of social progress and better standards of life in larger freedom.
