Salvadora Medina Onrubia was born in La Plata, Province of Buenos Aires, in 1894. She was a storyteller, poet, playwright, anarchist, feminist, single mother, promoter of children's theater and the first woman to direct a newspaper in Argentina.
She spent her childhood in Entre Ríos. In 1913 she moved to Buenos Aires and began her literary activity, working regularly as a contributor to the anarchist newspaper La Protesta, the magazine Fray Mocho and the newspaper Crítica. At the age of 16 she became pregnant and decided to become a single mother out of conviction.
She was one of the first women in the country to give a speech in a multitudinous political act, in 1914, for the liberation of the anarchist Simón Radowitzky. She also participated in the episodes surrounding the Tragic Week with her young son, whom she took with her so that he could experience the social struggle from the inside.
In 1931 the de facto president Uriburu closed the newspaper Crítica, directed by her husband, Natalio Botana, and imprisoned the couple along with 30 other journalists. A group of intellectuals asked Uriburu to release Salvadora for her "magnanimity" given her "triple condition of woman, poet and mother". But she did not agree with this request:
"I have just learned of the petition presented to the provisional government asking for magnanimity for me. I thank my fellow writers for their loyal and humanitarian gesture; I recognize the moral courage they have shown in this moment of collective cowardice in daring for my pity to defy their silly rages of domestic Jupiter. But I do not authorize the pious request ... Magnanimity implies forgiveness of a fault. And I neither remember faults nor need magnanimities ...".
Among the fundamental documents on what Uriburu's dictatorship meant, three are by Salvadora Medina Onrubia.
She directed the newspaper Crítica between 1946 and 1951 after her husband's death. "The red Venus of the editorial office", as she was called, with her presence and her ability, worked to make Crítica a popular, cultured and avant-garde media, with collaborators such as Jorge Luis Borges and Albert Einstein.
Another axis of her avant-garde literature was a style of storytelling that included sexuality, female eroticism and complicity between women as one more element of the reality that reflects and constructs fiction. Grandmother of the famous Copi, to whom she read her erotic literature.
As part of the suffragette movement, she demanded from Evita the recognition of that movement in the achievement of women's suffrage.
Without a newspaper (expropriated by Perón's government) and without property, depressed by the death of her first son and fond of occult sciences, Salvadora died in oblivion and poverty, in Buenos Aires, in 1972.
"To write about Salvadora is to make a treatise on the loneliness of untamed women," says her biographer Vanina Escales.
