Abstract: »The objective of the present paper is to comprehend the sexual violence in the State Terrorism of the brazilian dictatorship because in our perception this violence was present since the beginnings of the Exception Regime. We analysed the processes of the Special Commission of Compensation of Former Political Prisoners, also the transcriptions of the interviews made by the working group of "Dictatorship and Gender" of the National Commission of Truth. In this paper we highlight the modalities of sexual violence used specifically against women because we understand that in repressive contexts this methods are used with some purposes: posses a woman and have dominion over her; use their body as a "war weapon" against the men they're vinculated and double punish them, because they were oppositionists of the imposed system or because they transgressed their "feminine social role". We understand that many women suffered and still suffer with violence, such as psychological, symbolical or physical, no matter what kind of society they are. However, in war contexts or repressive ones, this violence reaches high levels of brutality and cruelty. Therefore, we understand that this specific violence was also used by the agents of the brazilian dictatorship as a systematic practice with the objective to destroy those women because of the motives previous presented.« (Source: Thesis)
