Abstract

The present work analyses the types of violence: domestic, institutional and feminicide, using the concept of gender-based violence against women, in combination with the dimensions of violence proposed by Johan Galtung: interpersonal, structural and cultural/symbolic, to demonstrate that gender-based violence against women in the state of Yucatán, Mexico, is practised not only in the home but also in institutions and collective representations, spaces where women are still conceived as an object symbol, which conditions the emergence of extreme violence behaviour that potentially leads to femicide.
