BEJARANO CELAYA, Margarita. El feminicidio es sólo la punta del iceberg. Región y sociedad [online]. 2014, vol.26, n.especial4, pp.13-44. ISSN 2448-4849.

This article discusses femicide as a continuum of violence that women endure in order to remain within the social order. In this sense, the different types of violence represent mechanisms for maintaining and reproducing the subordination of women under the exercise of male power in different areas. In a context of generalized violence, this article intends to recognize violence against women as a progressive situation that may end with the violent death of the woman, and emphasizes the need to study the phenomenon from the perspective of those who face it, to locate its manifestations and effects in order to prevent femicide.

Keywords : gender; violence; femicide; feminicide violence; institutions.
