Isis Valverde used her social media this Thursday (15) to talk about Ângela Diniz, the socialite from Minas Gerais who was murdered by her husband in December 1976, in Búzios (RJ). She was 32 years old and was shot four times in the face by her husband, playboy Raul Fernando do Amaral Street, known as Doca Street.
Isis, 36, will play Angela in the cinema, in a film directed by Hugo Prata, from “Elis”. In her post, the actress spoke about femicide, qualified as a crime only in 2015. “This is not to say that women were not murdered before because they were women,” she wrote, noting that Angela’s case was one of the most emblematic. from the country.
At the time, Doca’s lawyer, Evandro Lins e Silva, claimed that his client would have killed “for love” and acted in “legitimate defense of honor”: Ângela would be a “lascivious Venus” who invited “others and others” to bed of the couple, while the playboy was a “handsome and hardworking young man”.
With this thesis of the “legitimate defense of honor”, Doca was sentenced to two years in prison in the first trial. First defendant, he served his sentence in freedom. The sexist argument and the defense’s strategy of blaming Angela for her own murder generated controversy and indignation, giving rise to a feminist movement whose slogan was “Who loves does not kill”.
In this context, Isis, the screen Ângela Diniz, now wrote: “The result of the first trial was that he was innocent and had acted to defend his own honor. The arguments don’t change much, even 45 years later. If we are attacked or killed, they always want to blame us: we, the victims.”
The podcast “Praia dos Ossos”, from Rádio Novelo, recently reconstructed the trajectory of the socialite, famous by the nickname “Pantera de Minas”, and told, in eight episodes, the entire story of the crime that shocked the country and became a landmark in the Brazilian feminist movement.
