MENEGHEL, Stela Nazareth et al. Women talking to women: a meeting on Critical Routes 8. Salud colect. [online]. 2019, vol.15, e1871. ISSN 1669-2381.

The “Critical Routes” seminars, held since 2006, aim to discuss and present data on research and interventions regarding violence against women. This text presents a narrative synthesis of the International Seminar on Critical Routes 8, entitled “Feminicides: We need to talk about this,” held in Porto Alegre in 2017. The interview format was used to present the narratives, theoretical references and specific situations of each region. Feminicides have increased under the neoliberal model that is taking place in the countries of Latin America, and there is an excess mortality among young, migrant, unprotected, poor and racialized women. The publication of these types of syntheses is an opportunity to make public research data that denounce specific situations of risk and vulnerability. The article shares critical reflections and conversations among Brazilian and Spanish-speaking Latin American researchers, seeking to strengthen actions to combat violence.

Keywords : Violence Against Women; Gender-Based Violence; Vulnerable Populations; Latin America.
