In recent years the women's movement has been growing worldwide; In Argentina there is a strong tradition of feminist struggle that managed to get out of the more than 30 National Women's Meetings to settle strongly in the cities.


One of the most important demands during all the marches called by women has been the Law for the Voluntary Interruption of Pregnancy.

All the mobilizations are marked by the warmth, sorority and joy of the women's movement. This is a review of the different moments of these meetings where there is an increasing role for adolescent women and where we have seen that despite not having passed the law today, a social decriminalization of the issue has been achieved.


The photographs of this essay were taken at different times from 2017 to 2019; Among these are the historic days of June 13, 2018 in which the House of Representatives voted the half sanction for the Law on Voluntary Interruption of Pregnancy and on August 8 of the same year when the Senate rejected the bill. On all these occasions, the Plaza del Congreso was the stage where nearly two million people awaited the results of the vote.

Durante los últimos años el movimiento de mujeres ha ido creciendo en todo el mundo; en Argentina existe una fuerte tradición de lucha feminista que logró salir de los más de 30 Encuentros nacionales de mujeres para instalarse fuertemente en las ciudades.


Una de las más importantes demandas durante todas las marchas convocadas por mujeres ha sido la Ley por la Interrupción voluntaria del embarazo.

Todas las movilizaciones están signadas por la calidez, sororidad y alegría del movimiento de mujeres.  Este es un repaso por los distintos momentos de estos encuentros donde cada vez hay más protagonismo de mujeres adolescentes y donde hemos visto que a pesar de no haberse aprobado la ley hoy en día se ha logrado una despenalización social del tema.


Las fotografías de este ensayo fueron realizadas en distintos momentos desde el año 2017 hasta 2019; entre estas las jornadas históricas del 13 de junio del 2018 en la que la cámara de diputados votó la media sanción para la Ley de Interrupción Voluntaria del Embarazo y del 8 de agosto del mismo año cuando el Senado rechazó el proyecto de ley. En todas estas ocasiones la Plaza del Congreso fue el escenario donde cerca de dos millones de personas esperaban los resultados de la votación.
