SUMMARY:

According to the Brazilian Public Security Forum every seven hours a woman is murdered and every 10 minutes a girl or woman is a rape victim in Brazil. These numbers are even greater when class and race are taken into account, says the research. I believe this history of violence can be observed in the comic book series Aconteceu comigo by Brazilian artist Laura Athayde, this research object. The comic strip artist, who produces digital comics mainly for social networking, proposes to narrate the lives of Brazilian women through various different themes in this collection. Based on the hypothesis that Laura composes images of Brazilian women in their plurality, and is keen on presenting them in such a way that these comics reveal their lives and experiences which are invisible and erased in other national contexts. I used themes such as life narratives, digital artivism, and decolonial feminism as insights to readat these comics. Inspired by these ideas, I analyzed this collection using an interdisciplinary theoretical and methodological approach, emphasizing semiolinguistics, although I also rely on theories such as narratives of self, communication, digital activism, feminism, and comics. These questions allowed me to identify six narrative axis from which these lives are narrated: misogyny, violence, prejudice and oppression, racism, LGBTphobia, and mental health. Based on them, I analyzed women narratives - narrator-enunciator-character - who tell fragments of their lives in Aconteceu comigo, to understand that by activating the resistance and resilience ethé they strongly refute established imaginaries in the country attempting to control and circumscribe their lives. In this sense, I understand that by adopting a feminist and decolonial gesture, Laura Athayde is concerned both in representing Brazilian women in their diversity of bodies and experiences, and in portraying the history of victimization and violence in its many guises which are committed against women in the country. Thus, she uses her space of feminist artivist expression in the digital environment to politically position herself against these violences that affect our trajectories as Brazilian women, aiming to both affect and be affected by the publicization and narration of these experiences.
