This work analyses the dispute of meanings involving the presence of women in public space from the following question: how the meanings of 'vadia' are constituted in the movement "Marcha das vadias"? In order to do so, we have analyzed the discursive functioning of the collective "Marcha das Vadias" on Facebook, the textualization of the political and the displacements that produce a rupture in the memory about the "vadia". Our research focused on three main questions: 1. The modes of subjectivation in discourse through the relationship between language, subject and history; 2. The processes of constitution, formulation and circulation of discourses of a political movement in the digital space; 3. The operation of discursive memory in historical relations that produces meanings for women in the public space, as well as the process of construction and legitimation of the social subject "vadia" in the "Marcha das vadias", socially and politically. In order to go through such paths of meaning, this work is situated in the theoretical horizon of the materialist discourse analysis proposed by Michel Pêcheux, which considers the ideological constitution of the meanings, setting up a field of reflection that takes into account the relationship between historical reality, materiality of the language and the existence of the subject. At the same time, we promote the dialogue with fields of knowledge that revolve around the incorporation of gender, questioning the sexualization of human experience in discourse, such as the History of Women and Gender Studies (AU)
