About the Author

Natalia Milanesio is an associate professor of history at the University of Houston, Texas.


This groundbreaking history of sexuality and gender politics demonstrates that a new openness about sex was a fundamental aspect of Argentina's transition from dictatorship, directly informing many citizens' understanding of the meaning of democracy. The scope and depth of Milanesio's research is breathtaking, as is her careful attention to nuance and contradiction." - Matt Karush, George Mason University

"Based on a wealth of sources, Destape illuminates multiple facets of social repression and contestation in historical perspective. Placing sexuality at the center of her inquiry, Milanesio also provides important clues for current debates on gender violence, sex education, contraception, and abortion. Altogether, the book offers a novel and engaging account of the meanings and linkages between sex and democracy in post-dictatorship Argentina." - Barbara Sutton, author of Surviving State Terror: Women's Testimonies of Repression and Resistance in Argentina
