This study analysed the determinants and determinants of the case of femicide in the past five years in the Puno region. The objectives of the study are to analyse and explain the determinants of the phenomenon of women’s femicide and to analyse the motivations and beliefs of a feminicide decision in the family environment. The method of study is quantitative, correlational, the investigative techniques used are the revision of statistical panel data and desk analysis. The results found allow us to argue that the phenomenon of femicide in our environment is linked to the symbolic construction of violence by individual, socio-demographic and structural factors, as well as the characterisation of the use of this violence as a resource of control and male dominance. It is also closely linked to the struggle for the recognition of women as subjects of rights and above all the human dignity of women.
