Abstract

This essay aims at problematizing the relations between violence against women and social isolation during the covid-19 pandemic, based on the dialog between the theoretical contributions of the intersectional studies and those of the Institutionalist Movement by Gilles Deleuze’s philosophy of difference. Social isolation in the pandemic appears both as an analysis operator and as an intersection category, which can be understood as an event in the context of institutionalism. This means, therefore, to envision intersectionality from the post-structuralist perspective. This study sought to construct problematization spaces based on contributions of Collective Health, which go from health to social and human sciences, reflecting on the amplified conception of health and its several different interfaces. From this perspective, the direct causal relationship between social isolation and the violence against women was displaced in a socialhistorical- political analysis that articulates the singular micro-social and the macro-social contexts, to unveil the inequalities and violence already experienced.
