AZEVEDO, Ana Karina Silva  and  DUTRA, Elza Maria do Socorro. It was once a history without history: thinking of being a woman in the Northeast. Pesqui. prát. psicossociais [online]. 2019, vol.14, n.2, pp. 1-14. ISSN 1809-8908.

The present article aims to reflect on being a woman in the northeast as a historical condition. To do so, we will use excerpts from women's testimonies to support our reflection on the brand of historicity in the construction of being a woman in our society today. Such speech snippets are the fruit of a survey of three surviving women attempting to murder their partners. These testimonies were recorded, transcribed and obtained in a semi-structured interview, with a question that related to the report of these women having survived a crime of violence against women. We perceive a cultural rootedness produced by the historical hegemony of patriarchy as a logic of social understanding about the roles of the feminine and the masculine, which writes in our imaginaries a subjectivity of being a woman and being a man socially.

Keywords : Northeastern women; Historicity; Feminism.
