Abstract

This study aimed to reach an understanding into how violence against women occurs, where it happens and who is the principle aggressor and their relationship with gender construction. We done a survey of written sources (patient medical records) from 2015, for those who were victims of domestic violence and were attended to at the Clinical Hospital - HCU. This information was cross-referenced in relation to nursing experience of undergraduates in nursing that developed home visits with a social assistant from a Basic Family Health Unit, in the city of Uberlândia-MG, over a timeline in 2016. After the analysis and taking into consideration the experience of women inserted within the scenario of violence, we noted that the victims of violence had already suffered some type of violence in the past and this repeats itself throughout their life and history, with the change of companion, and leaving the home due to family problems. There was a noted tendency toward the aggressor being someone known to or from the family, companion, boyfriend, friend, mother and father. The data also points to the aggressor as being predominantly from the masculine sex. Violence against women rubs shoulder to shoulder with categories of gender violence, class and their relationship of power. Such relationships are mediated by a prominent patriarchal order within Brazilian society, which gives to the man the right to dominate and control his wife, even to the point of violence.
