This concluding chapter examines the aftermath of Beatriz’s death and the significance of her life as a protagonist of revolution and change in Latin America’s long sixties. Moving beyond 1977, it charts the different responses to her suicide, revolutionary resistance to Augusto Pinochet’s dictatorship, Chilean Left’s evolution into the 1980s, and the transition to democracy in Chile in 1990. It asks what Beatriz would have made of these developments and why her life is relevant both for history and for the present. It ends by looking at Beatriz’s legacy in the context of 21st century feminist movements in Latin America and the estallido social in Chile that erupted in October 2019.

Keywords:   Chile, Chilean Left, Democracy, transition to, Dictatorship, Estallido social, Feminism, Resistance, Revolution, Suicide
