Héros nationaux ociels versus héroïnes nationales oubliées : Le cas de Manuela Sáenz au Venezuela

Abstract : The symbol of Fathers of the Fatherland is always valued in Latin American societies, thus providing them with a male-oriented model. Instead, women’s involvement that greatly impacted Latin American history is given scant recognition. Why are female heroes bien ostracized from struggles for independance? Merging various discriminations (illegitimate birth, gender, divorce, mistress as opposed to wife, bisexuality…), the case of Manuela Sáenz is very significant. In the midst of a male- and Military-dominated environment, she successfully partook of the emancipation of Southern American countries from Spain. The paradigm of intersectionality is then best suited to account for the processes that lead to the rejection of this female hero while maintaining the nationwide celebration of traditional male heroes.
