OLIVEIRA, Marcella Pereira de. The feminine and its nuances: a relation between the concept of devastation and violence against women. Mental [online]. 2018, vol.12, n.22, pp. 53-71. ISSN 1679-4427.

This paper is situated in the line of study on the feminine based on psychoanalysis from Freud-Lacan orientation. It aims to relate the concept of devastation, worked in Lacanian theory as a result of the mother and daughter relationship whose daughter does not find a place in the mother's desire, with the usual practice in Brazilian society of violence against women. The research method was bibliographical study with the main texts of Freud-Lacan psychoanalysis dealing with the female theme, devastation and violence against women. The results raise the hypothesis that the female inherent devastation, when not elaborate, reflects not only the relationship of the child with his mother as well as in love relationships this daughter as wife, who often engages with men repeating the relationship model with mother: no place in the desire of the Other, before mother and now husband. In the discussion, I put this relationship model facilitates the entry of violence with this woman accepted a masochistic position of any husband's behavior towards her, even physical attacks. It is a position of an object: woman as object of the Other, allowing them to be humiliated, abused and assaulted. I conclude by saying that the foreclosure of the signifier of The woman in the unconscious makes it inherent to the female a constant search for a phallic consistency that put limits to her enjoyment, making something with her symptom so that devastation does not lead to worse - represented by violence.
