The armed conflict faced by Colombian population from this last half century has produced more than five million displaced people in recent decades (near to 10% of the national population). Women and their children are an important part of this group. This paper focuses on women heads of households –which are authorities in the home and are responsible for its protection – that have been victims of forced displacement and have arrived in the city of Medellin. In particular, it focuses on the life strategies implemented by them over the years to deal with situations of violations of their rights and violence. Because of their rural origins, their low education, their numerous descendants, they must face new threats in the big city and are exposed to situations of uprooting, violence, poverty and social exclusion.
