The levels of violence and insecurity in Mexico have grown significantly since 2006, while female deaths with presumption of homicide rose alarmingly. In this paper we will describe some contextual elements on gender-based violence against women of our diagnosis of the Northeastern region of the country (Coahuila, Chihuahua, Durango, Nuevo León, Tamaulipas and Zacatecas). We will offer some indicators of the position that women occupy in relations of power and production within the framework of the male hegemony. We will address the phenomenon of social violence in the context of the growth of criminality, public insecurity and the military presence in some of the estates of the region as a result of the declaration of the war on drugs. The evidence we present will allow us to define the context as that “specific set of cultural, economic and political situations and conditions in which it is socially possible and rationally understandable the presentation and the development of a phenomenon”.1
