ATRAVESADXS (TRANSVERD) is a research project in photography focused on the testimonies of relatives of victims of feminized in Argentina. These are not individual, but collective experiences. Through political organization, these families are able to continue their fight for the demand for justice, by these women and also by their children that many of them leave behind. With more than 70 testimonies from these families, ATRAVESADXS shows that unfortunately the violence does not end with femicide, but it continues in many other forms. From the media violence that not only re-victimizes and blames the victims, but also the families to the justice system that not only is not present in the prevention of violence this also does not accompany the families in the process of requesting justice later that feminicide occurs creating a state vacuum. The project looks at the power structures that allow this violence to exist, what we refer to when we speak of a culture of rape, and what is happening with some masculinities that do not accept the autonomy of female bodies.

Adriana Cufre is the daughter of Paula Melendez. In February 2016, Paula suffered a sexual attack in the middle of the street, at 9 in the morning, in Ingeniero Maschwitz. The culprit was never found. “My mother’s case is irrefutable proof that women are not raped and killed because of how we go out dressed, or because we are pretty, or because we show our cleavage or butt. My mother was eighty-eight year old. Can you imagine? She was very vital, very alive. It is a degree of tremendous perversion. Because it is for the possession itself, let’s say. In other words, there is no other question. I relate it precisely to this, to the question that for society the problem is always the women. The woman for how she comes out, the woman for how she present herself, dresses and how she provoke, right? Here we have real and concrete proof that this is not the case” ©Eleonora Ghioldi from the series, ATRAVESADXS
Hugo Capacio is the father of Dayana Soledad Capacio, victim of femicide “I am the father of a victim of gender violence, a 17-year-old girl. She suffered from a violent relationship. At the time, as a father, I did not know how to see it or interpret what gender violence was. After her murder got prepared. And you see that… well… the different processes: psychological violence, domination over the person, over the actions of the victims…. And well… I think that the most important thing about all this is that today as a father I manage to interpret and learn that if the victim has confidence – today there are social groups, state agencies, and the family itself… Today, they have to have confidence, talk about it, tell what happens with them. Today adults and society are already more prepared to understand what it is about gender violence and that all of us together can help and that we can get out of violence.” 
Vanesa Soledad Celma was set on fire by her partner in 2010, a case that was never investigated. Eva Dominguez is a relative of Venesa: “She was eight months pregnant, her five-year-old son went out to ask for help alone. Since then, the justice has characterized the event as a fire and not as a femicide. That is why the children cannot access the Law Brisa (“Brisa Law” – Economic compensation for children and adolescents who are victims of family or gender violence. It recognizes the right to receive a monthly sum and to have health coverage). Judge Monica Lamperti literally told us to stop screwing around, that she had many cases. The prosecutor said that Vanesa died for love. The court does not give us answers, we are demanding recognition and an official apology from the State. Vanesa died after suffering for four months. She was burned by her partner. And we were never able to get the justice to investigate it. Femicides is the last link in the scale of gender violence. How does it end with the femicide, after an escalation of different acts that begin with psychological violence, with economic violence and with physical violence. In reality, all of us have to deconstruct this construction regarding women, how they have formed us to stop supporting this patriarchal system that has been locking us up more and more every day and has been filling us with guilt in many cases, in continuing to support a family no matter what, because that is how we are built. And the truth is that today families can be different, diverse, we don’t need to be tied up to anything or anyone. We can be mothers being married, or being single, or we can rent wombs or we can lead a different life. Living free from violence is the main thing. How to teach young people, young women, that they can leave and have a better future.” ©Eleonora Ghioldi from the series, ATRAVESADXS
Lorena Rivero, sister of Laura Rivero and aunt of Tiago Castro, victims of femicide and filicide, is also a survivor of an attempted femicide. She manages to take her attacker to jail, her sister was not so lucky. “My name is Lorena Rivero, I am the sister of Laura Rivero and aunt of Tiago Castro stabbed to death. In March the killer was sentenced to life in prison without benefits. We are within a minimum of peace because he was sentenced to life. He was my sister’s partner for a few months, he was a repeat offender, he had recently been released from prison for wanting to murder his previous partner.” ©Eleonora Ghioldi from the series, ATRAVESADXS
Chiara Paez’s femicide was one of the cases of femicides that turned rage into an impulse to take to the streets with the slogan #niunamenos. This year, after 6 years of her femicide, a court annulled the conviction of the femicide. The court considers that Manuel Mansilla should be tried by a juvenile court because at the time of the femicide he was 17 years old. Chiara’s body was found in the patio of the house where the femicide lived, who at the moment lived with his mother and grandparents. They were never tried as accomplices. “My name is Fabio Paez. I am the father of Chiara Páez, the teenager murdered in Rufino, Santa Fe, on May 10, 2015. I believe that one of the ways to prevent femicides is to participate more. Because there is still a large part of the people who think that this is not going to happen to them. And I tell you that this touches all social levels, from the humblest to the most powerful. So I think that the way to prevent is to try to participate more, that the State is present in every complaint that there is. Because there is a large percentage of dead girls who have had a complaint before. So I think you have to be there, caring, accompanying. Behind each dead woman an entire family is destroyed.” ©Eleonora Ghioldi from the series, ATRAVESADXS
The crime of Candela Labrador, an 11-year-old girl who was kidnapped, raped and murdered on August 22, 2011, was one of the femicides that shocked Argentina. She was kidnapped for nine days and her body appeared in a garbage bag. In 2021, ten years after Candela’s femicide, the second trial was held where a drug trafficker, a former Buenos Aires police officer, a security force informant and a carpenter were tried for the murder of Candela Sol Rodríguez. “I am the mother of Candela Sol Rodríguez, murdered on August 22, 2011 in Hurlingham. My girl was 11 years old, and well, I found her dead on August 31 in Hurlingham and that is how my fight began. I started the fight against all the police in the province. I am a humble woman, I don’t have a job, in fact at that time I made cakes. So I had no way of affording a lawyer. And well, the Morón mafia wanted to cover everything and cover up the femicide of my daughter. After nine years I’m still with all that. In a first trial we got life imprisonment for the rapist and the one who murdered Candela and for others who helped them. But there are many more to go. That is my fight. Seek justice for my daughter against the entire mafia of the province of Buenos Airess and the police of the province. To all the women who lost our children, to those who suffer aggression, we must always fight, we must never lower our arms, to fight and fight. And fall down and get up. If we don’t defend ouselves, no one will defend us. Today I defend my daughter. And I will defend her until the day I die. Because if I, who am her mother, do not defend her, who will? ©Eleonora Ghioldi from the series, ATRAVESADXS
Diana Sacayán was one of the main activists of the human rights movement and the fight for the recognition and social inclusion of the transvestite-trans collective in Argentina. She was brutally murdered on October 11, 2015. On June 18, 2018, the Oral Criminal Court No. 4 of the City of Buenos Aires sentenced her murderer in a sentence in which, for the first time, the Argentine justice described the murder as a transvestite as a hate crime to gender identity. Say Sacayan, Diana’s brother, leaves testimony for ATRAVESADXS: “My name is Say Sacayán. I am a male trans person, I am also the brother of Diana Sacayan. Diana Sacayan was a human rights defender, she was a transvestite person and she worked and was a very important reference in terms of public policies and the rights won in our country for the transvestite-trans population. Diana was brutally murdered in October 2015 as a result of a transvesticide. We find ourselves before the death of Diana with which the Argentine justice had never ruled against the deaths of transvestite and trans people. We were able to carry out the struggle of what it means in addition to the average life span of transvestites and trans people that reached Diana because she was 39 years old when it happened, and the average life span is between 35 and 40 years. We were able to talk about the structural violence that exists on the transvestite-trans population, we were able to talk about the deaths that are preventable, the social transvesticides in order to be able to raise the figure of the transvesticide. When we speak of transvesticide we speak of violent crimes against transvestite and trans identities that are not far from the structural violence that exists because there is a whole hatred that is socially constructed as a result of the fact that there was an absent state and there was no type of right to the transvestite-trans population.” ©Eleonora Ghioldi from the series, ATRAVESADXS
The murder of Natalia Melmann, a 15-year-old Argentine girl, occurred on February 4, 2001 in the city of Miramar, province of Buenos Aires. A 30-year-old ex-convict with ties to the Miramar police kidnapped Natalia and put her in the trunk of his car. In it, she was taken by two police officers who tortured, raped, and finally murdered Natalia, perpetrated with her own shoe lace with which she was suffocated to death. Criminal expertise linked five men involved since in the analysis of the young woman’s body five different genetic traces were found, presumably all of members of the Miramar police force. The case gained great national relevance, resulting in massive marches to find Natalia as soon as possible, which once her body was found gathered in protests to demand justice for the young woman. Her father, Gustavo Melmann, continues to seek justice for his daughter. After more than 20 years there is still an unidentified male. “My name is Gustavo Melmann. Natalia Melmann’s father, a 15-year-old girl, with a future ahead of her, a fighter, champion of her school. She did not want to have children but to adopt them because she thought that there were too many children on the street who needed to have parents. She wanted to be a gynecologist, an obstetrician. On February 4, 2001, the Buenos Aires police officers seized her on the Miramar coast, took her outside the city and generated all kinds of torments. They took her life with her own shoelace. That took a whole village fight. We all went out to look for her. Although the return to have Nati does not exist all the struggle that we carry forward is in some way so that things do not happen again and generate a Never More or Not One Less. We are asking at a very important moment in this country and in the world the search for equality, against violence against women, all kinds of violence, psychological, patrimonial, physical violence, rapes. The history of humanity that we have had to reflect lots of men, in what place and in what space we have denied the equality of women, we have to rethink everything as men and as a society.” WRITTEN TESTIMONY: I am Gustavo father of Natalia Melmann Every day we miss her more, for you as always we love you to infinity back and forth. You are alive in the fight of all the girls as you saw. They fight against machismo, Patriarchy and for equality. For love we will continue fighting. ©Eleonora Ghioldi from the series, ATRAVESADXS
Florencia Bustamante is the sister of Karen Bustamante, a victim of femicide in 2021. The State, often absent in the accompaniment of relatives of victims of femicide. Many Argentinian asks tehmdelves how can it happen that a family who finds out on television about the femicide of their loved one has to face a trial without a defense with gender perspective. “We found out about Karen’s femicide from the news. My mother couldn’t believe it when she saw it. The State left us, let go of our hand and we are adrift, as are thousands of families, because they do not arrive until the girls experience the femicide and not even after the femicide does they reach the families that can’t find any type of consolation, beyond the fact that they will never be able to return our sister to us, they also do not contribute anything to leave us a little reassured that they are really working because there are many ends they leave loose, they do not move as they have to move. With regard to lawyers, how can it be that the detainee has a lawyer and we as victims do not have a lawyer? We have to be waiting if a lawyer comes from here, from there, to gather money little by little, because we are not financially well enough to face all the expenses that come after this and you have to have the money for all things. How can we not need a lawyer? How can we not need psychological support or financial support? Of course we need it because after what happened to us we were left in nothingness, it destroyed us.” ©Eleonora Ghioldi from the series, ATRAVESADXS
Marcela Morera, mother of Julieta Mena leaves oral testimony about her daughter Julieta: “I’m Marcela Morera. I’m Julieta Mena’s mother. Julieta was a victim of femicide on October 11, 2015. She was 22 years old and was almost 3 months pregnant. Her boyfriend killed her. And the reason for him was not wanting to have that baby, that she did want to continue with that pregnancy. Through these years I became very involved with the subject of gender violence and decided to raise a flag for my daughter and for all the girls and women who suffer violence. At this time what I learned is that women should not be left alone. That women who suffer violence in their home are a women who are harmed, who do not know how to get out, who are ashamed and who tell her things sometimes, and sometimes hide them. That many times they decide to leave and then return. They repent and return with their victimizer. And at that moment those around them get tired of it. They get tired of listening to them, because they feel that things enter through one ear and out through the other. That’s when they leave them alone. And the violent one is where he earns points. Where it isolates them. So never get bored of listening to a woman victim of violence. Never leave her alone. Do not get tired, which is a way to help them get out of this.” | WRITTEN TESTIMONY: Dear daughter, I did everything I could to make you realize that this man did not deserve you. I didn’t know what else to do. Sorry. Remember that you are “my sun, my moon and my stars.” I love you and I will love you the rest of my life and I promise to help all the women I can. Until the reunion my beautiful July. Mom ©Eleonora Ghioldi from the series, ATRAVESADXS
Many Argentinians ask themselves if it is possible to depatriarchalize the judicial system. What is the role that the State should have to make a more effective accompaniment? Facundo Ortiz is the father of Luna Ortiz, a victim of femicide. “In the trial we failed to label Luna’s death as a femicide. It was labeled as abandonment of people followed by death with the supply of narcotics for free. We have fought for the change of cover, but the prosecutor always refused. The trial was with a gender perspective because in the foundations Luna’s vulnerability was discussed, the objectification towards Luna, the contempt towards women, the age difference, the context of men where Luna’s death was seen. It could have been marked as a case of femicide, but the prosecutor was not up to the facts”. ©Eleonora Ghioldi from the series, ATRAVESADXS
Alicia Vallejos was murdered by her partner in August 2016. Her killer was sentenced in 2021 to life imprisonment. In Argentina there is no life imprisonment as such, it is a semantic fiction. The sentenced to her, is framed within the progressive law of the penalty. After 35 years you can apply for parole. His family were fighting for justice, a process that took five years. Romina Vallejos is the sister of Alicia Beatriz Soledad Vallejos: “He was 23 years old when he decided for her life. Justice for Ali Vallejos. Your mother and sister will always keep your memory alive” María Josefa Salcedo is the mother of Alicia Beatriz Soledad Vallejos, a victim of femicide. “I want to be justice for Alicia and for many more. Let there be no more Alicias. That the judges do something, that they do something for each mother, for each sister, for each person that we have to bury. I want to say that I miss her every day, every day of my life I miss her, I wait for her. I wait with all my soul for my daughter. For me it was the love of my life to have her. It is very important that there is justice. I ask for justice for Alicia Vallejos. Nothing more”. ©Eleonora Ghioldi from the series, ATRAVESADXS
Mónica Susana Ferreyra is the mother of Araceli Fulles, a victim of femicide on April 2, 2017 in Jose León Suarez. When seeking justice in Argentina, many of the families suffer threats and harassment for seeking answers. Araceli’s case was very emblematic in the history of Argentina for having had nine suspects, one of whom was a relative of a police officer who was part of the investigation. Darío Badaracco, was the main detainee and died on April 13, 2019 after being hospitalized for five days in a hospital in the city of Olavarría, after being beaten and burned with hot water by two cellmates in the prison of Sierra Chica, while the other eight defendants were released by the San Martín Appeals Chamber in September 2017. This is the testimony of Mónica Ferreyra, her mother: “The beautiful things that I did with her, it is important to remeber. She went to a barbecue party a block and a half from home. That day she disappeared at dawn when a boy picked her up and told her where he was going and she told him I’m going home and he told her no, we’re not going to a birthday party. He invited her, took her and that’s where he handed her over to nine criminals. That’s where they hang her. When they hanged her they raped her. She wanted to escape and with a seal on her back they drown her, they kill her. Everyone being there, not knowing what to do with the body, they decided to break it and put it in a freezer until they found a place to put her body. Once they found a place to put my daughter’s body, they dug a hole, filled it with cement and put my daughter’s body face down. After 27 days they found my daughter’s body. I don’t know how, my daughter gives me strength, I say, I’m still standing, I’m still fighting, I’m still looking for justice for my daughter.” ©Eleonora Ghioldi from the series, ATRAVESADXS
Patricia Fuño, is the sister of Lilian de Fuño who was murdered together with her two children. Felicide is one of the most cruel crimes, when the femicide kills his own children as another more aggravating form of punishment. “My sister was 8 months pregnant and was murdered on November 2, 2009. When her partner killed her, not satisfied with that, he killed my two little nephews, children of this same person. There are women who file fifteen police complaints and nothing happens either. He killed my sister having a single complaint and killed all her children. What do you expect? She had no follow-up after that complaint. Nobody cared to know what situation she was in, nobody called her to ask why not she came back, what was happening, and my sister ended up dead along with her children. And there are a lot of stories of women who file complaints and nothing happens. Here the base is wrong, it’s wrong from the people who take the police complaint and they don’t do their job and nobody cares about them”. ©Eleonora Ghioldi from the series, ATRAVESADXS
As a result of the femicide of Micaela García, when clearly after a series of failures by agents of the state of Entre Ríos without a gender perspective, the need for a law was considered that would train people who work in the state to have a gender perspective. gender. Thanks to the efforts of many, today in Argentina there is the Micaela law, enacted on January 10, 2019, which establishes mandatory training in gender and gender violence for all people who work in public office, in the Executive powers , Legislative and Judicial of the Nation. Néstor García, father of Micaela Garcia who was a victim of femicide in April 2017, leaves an oral testimony: “Micaela disappears at dawn on April 1. That week the failure of the state of Entre Ríos became clear. We count at least three failures very directly. The first is that his femicide who today is with a firm sentence, life imprisonment for kidnapping, rape and femicide of Mica, was on probation a few weeks ago. A conditional release that he could have in the first place because he had complaints for three violations. In one that was brought to trial, he was not convicted because the evidence to convict him was DNA and he accused his own twin brother and since the courts did not want to pay for a specific study to find out who the carrier of the DNA was, they acquitted him. But the other two violations joined the files, they were resolved in an abbreviated trial between three people: a prosecutor, a judge and the lawyer and they gave him very few years of sentence. Two people from the state without gender perspective intervened: a prosecutor and a judge. Later, the judge who granted him conditional release had seven reports from psychology professionals from the prison service of the province of Entre Rios who warned him that if they gave him conditional release, he would rape again. And the judge grants him probation. Another agent of the state without gender perspective also intervenes there. The day before, Friday, March 31, the father of a 13-year-old girl in Gualeguay went to make a complaint that he (Micaela’s femicide) had tried to rape his daughter. And the complaint was not taken because the judge was not in the city and she was told to return on Monday or Tuesday and file the complaint. A rape complaint about someone who was on probation convicted of rape that was ignored. The state agent without a gender perspective also intervened there, because otherwise he would have made a risk assessment of what could happen.” ©Eleonora Ghioldi from the series, ATRAVESADXS

ATRAVESADXS (TRANSVERD) es un proyecto de investigación en fotografía centrado en los testimonios de familiares de víctimas de feminicidio en Argentina. No se trata de experiencias individuales sino colectivas. A través de la organización política, estas familias logran continuar su lucha por el reclamo de justicia, por parte de estas mujeres y también de sus hijos que muchas de ellas dejan atrás. Con más de 70 testimonios de estas familias, ATRAVESADXS demuestra que lamentablemente la violencia no termina con el feminicidio sino que continúa en muchas otras formas. Desde la violencia mediática que no solo revictimiza y culpabiliza a las víctimas sino también a las familias hasta el sistema de justicia que no solo no está presente en la prevención de la violencia sino que tampoco acompaña a las familias en el proceso de solicitud de justicia luego de que se produzca el feminicidio. creando un vacío estatal. El proyecto intenta indagar en las estructuras de poder que permiten que exista esta violencia, a qué nos referimos cuando hablamos de cultura de la violación, y qué está pasando con algunas masculinidades que no aceptan la autonomía de las mujeres y los cuerpos femeninos. El Estado debe entender que es necesario su presencia e intervencion no solo luego de que suceden los feminicidios con acompañamiento para lograr jsuticia sino tambien en la prevencion. Pensar que el problema de la violencia de genero solo le compete a las mujeres es simplemente un error fundamental en el camino a un cambio profundo en nuestra sociedad. No hay reparacion posible sin justicia.
