Violence is an act or omission that seeks to cause harm to another person or force him/her to do something against his/her will. Violence against women is a complex phenomenon that can be approached through the individual as a receiving/generating subject of aggression, and also through the structural factors associated. Based on the results for the state of Sonora, of the National Survey about the Dynamics of Relationships in Households, this work provides conceptual and empirical elements related to violence against women. The hypothesis is that education and income of women are not directly related to the risk of violence. The results show that the total violence experienced by women who live in Sonora, was slightly higher than the national, although they are not statistically significant. The educational level and economic income were not directly associated with the different forms of violence. Women with professional education and with low level of education have a lower risk of experiencing some form of violence. Therefore it is suggested that social programs for attention and elimination of the violence against women, should be addressed to all kind of people.

Keywords : domestic violence; marital violence; intrafamily violence; gender violence; gender; education and income.
