A Lei Maria da Penha e a proteção legal à mulher vítima em São Borja no Rio Grande do Sul: da violência denunciada à violência silenciada Maria da Penha's Law and the legal protection to women who are victims in the city of São Borja (Rio Grande do Sul): from reported violence to violence silenced

Abstract

O artigo socializa os resultados de uma pesquisa que problematizou os registros de ocorrências e inquéritos policiais, processos e sentenças judiciais dos crimes previstos na Lei n. 11.340/06, a Lei Maria da Penha, envolvendo mulheres vítimas de violência doméstica, em São Borja no Rio Grande do Sul. Metodologicamente, caracterizou-se como exploratória-descritiva, privilegiando-se a Delegacia de Polícia Civil e o Fórum da Comarca desse município como campos de coleta de dados. Os resultados sugerem que, apesar dos avanços dessa lei, a mesma não tem sido eficaz na proteção de coibir a violência contra a mulher.<br>The article presents the results of a study in which it was discussed the incident reports and police investigations, court processes and sentencing of crimes covered by Law 11.340/06, Maria da Penha's Law, that deal with women who are victims of domestic violence in the city of São Borja in Rio Grande do Sul.
