Sutton, Barbara, Surviving State Terror. Women’s Testimonies of Repression and Resistance in Argentina, New York, New York University Press, 2018, pp. 328

Barbara Sutton collects stories of women in Argentina who have been tortured in clandestine detention. Her work centres on three main questions: how did gender hierarchies, ideologies and identities play out in the infliction of bodily oppression; in the disavowal of the tortured body; and in embodied strategies of survival and resistance. She also asks how can we account for the gendered tortured body and how do we tell stories about it.
