The intention of the paper is to set out a theoretical digression as regards the representability of traumatic events and to explore the relationship between body, language, and power, as well as the relationship between men and women, victims and repressors in Argentina during the period of the last military dictatorship. The paper analyses the representation in literature of a norm: women’s supposed inferiority. Moving throughout the epistemological consideration as regards the possibility of speaking about trauma, the paper focuses on Luisa Valenzuela’s short story «Cambio de armas» (1982). The protagonist is a woman/ victim represented as a sick patient unable to act and who needs treatment.
