Even with the advances of women's struggle and feminist movements, sexism and the attempt to erase women and their rights are still present in Brazilian society, and this is no different in the universe of national comic books. There is, also in the research of comics in the country, a reproduction of the traditional silence, which culminated in the epistemic erasure of Brazilian comic book artists in books, articles, encyclopedias, anthologies, events, etc. As resistance to this scenario, women struggle to insert themselves in this sector “dominated” by men. An evidence of this is the strong presence of Brazilian comic artists on digital social networks, where they publicize their creations and win the hearts of readers even before reaching the publishing market. It is in this context that, in 2015, the series of digital comics, Aconteceu Comigo, shows up. Written by artist Laura Athayde from Manaus, the 70 comics in the series are based on life stories of real women, shared with the author anonymously via an online form, about situations they experience because they are women. Thus, supported by decolonial perspectives and in Latin American feminisms, such as the studies by Anzaldúa (2012), Lugones (2007; 2014) and Gonzalez (2019; 2020), I contextualize the struggles and achievements of Brazilian women over the years, supported by writings such as Carneiro (2003) and Teles (2017), with the aim of understanding what Aconteceu Comigo reveals about the reality of Brazilian women in the present. In light of what Machado (2015a; 2015b; 2016a; 2016b) points out, I take the narrative of life based on the ideas of Bertaux (2006) and Arfuch (2003; 2013), which are based on sociology and anthropology, and on their meeting with the theory of discourse analysis, specifically the Semiolinguistics of Charaudeau (1992; 2005; 2019), considering the common aspects in the origins of both. I also seek to give greater emphasis, as Machado (2015a) did, to the language acts constructed by the narrator-characters in the primary objective of outlining different parts of their lives in the quest to form a whole that makes sense, so that it can be transmitted or narrated to somebody. Although the focus is on these linguistic acts, facts such as time and space, socio-discursive imaginaries, Charaudeau (2013), and ethé conveyed, Maingueneau (2013), as well as concrete data regarding dates and events in the life of the one-who-tells or of the one-who-is-told-about are not discarded, as they help in the construction of meaning about the lives narrated in the comics.
