The study intends to characterize the impact of the pandemic on the social determinants of gender violence, in the most vulnerable parishes of the city of Porto. For this purpose, a sample of women will be analyzed, who have already been involved in episodes of gender violence (domestic), before and/or during the pandemic, and who live in socio-economically vulnerable parishes in the city of Porto.
