OLIVEIRA, Luciana da Silva; VIEIRA, Kelly Dias  and  ROMAGNOLI, Roberta Carvalho. Women's groups in gender violence confrontation: ethical directions. Arq. bras. psicol. [online]. 2021, vol.73, n.2, pp. 52-66. ISSN 1809-5267.

This paper discusses women's groups, devices used since the beginning of feminist movements to work on gender issues, as a way for the construction and intensification of resistance strategies with women in situations of gender violence. We propose some ethical directions that lead to micropolitical practices capable of sustaining in the group what is multiplied among its participants, inventing possible alternatives between impossibilities and exploring the potency of connections between different modes of existence. It is an ethical-aesthetic-political group that generates effects and that can facilitate the production of new understandings and practices related to gender compositions and to power relations experienced by women in their relationships and in society. The bet is that in these groups the articulation between subjectivity and politics occurs and, besides that, that the group space helps to disappear the crystallizations of the places and roles that women construct in their stories.

Keywords : Gender violence; Women's groups; Micropolitics; Subjectivity production.
