Several studies indicate that violence against women in San Cristóbal de Las Casas, Chiapas, represents a social problem of great dimensions, in which the landscape a whole is taken into account but the specificities of the experiences of women included in it are ignored in the general data. Asides from quantifying, it is important to study violence against women from the perspective of themselves, analyze how they live, their feelings and thoughts, therefore, this article aims to answer the following research question: How do women experience violence when they have suffered it at some point in their life? specifically the young and adult women of the municipality aforementioned. The study is a qualitative research in the frame of gender anthropology, the central concept that is used is the lived experience as a gender experience. A non-probabilistic sample of intentional type was defined, consequently, semi-structured interviews were carried out with 14 women of different socio-demographic profiles located in the municipality; the topics established in the script formed trees of categories whose content was codified and analyzed with the help of the qualitative analysis software Nvivo. The results indicate that the experiences of violence of women are crossed by the vital situation and the condition of gender, the interviewees experienced in key moments of their life, in violent ways, what it means to be a woman, in each one of those stages, they learned and apprehended by cooperating or by violent means what is expected of them and how it must be a girl, a decent young girl, a good mother and a good wife and how they should not exercise their sexuality.
