GALELI, Paola Rodegheri  and  ANTONI, Clarissa De. Womem who experienced marital violence: conceptions on themselves, the man who practiced the violence and the violence. Nova perspect. sist. [online]. 2018, vol.27, n.61, pp. 82-92. ISSN 0104-7841.

This qualitative study aimed to understand conjugal violence through the conceptions of five women who have been through this in their recent past, aged 23-36, who were involved in a lawsuit against the man who practiced the violence and away from them for at least eight months. A questionnaire was applied with socio-demographic data and a semi-structured interview covering aspects about the relationship, violence and time after separation. Three categories were originated on the analysis focusing the conceptions about (a) themselves, (b) the man who practiced the violence, and (c) the violence. The results show an inappropriate understanding during the period they were suffering, often minimizing and not conceiving the attitudes as abusive. This conception was keeping the violence on the marital subsystem. However, it's possible to conceive a critical conception during the breaking up process. In this article, the way to stop the violence was breaking up the relationship.
