The aim of this paper is to capture the image of women and the multiple roles they took on in the years from 1923 to 1974, documenting visible and invisible violence and its impact on their lives during a long and turbulent historical period through their own narrative. Given that their actions entailed the orderly and dynamic functioning of groups, communities or collective forms of action and resistance, through contemporary literature, historical sources, and the qualitative recording of their experiences, we aim to highlight their own voices and record the women’s narrative in historical paths.
