The present paper aims to reflect on the figure of women and the social role attributed to them in a capitalist and patriarchal society. The paper aims to reflect on the issue of violence, exploitation, and domination over women, affected by a male chauvinist logic that sustains a social structure benefiting and maintaining white men in power. This is a qualitative bibliographical research based on studies that problematize the naturalization of the subjugation of women through the control of their bodies and their reproductive potential. In a first moment, this naturalization is exposed from the patriarchal society and the capitalista production mode, contemplating the social role played by women in the labor sphere. In a second moment, it reflects on the control of women's bodies and their subordination to the domestic sphere and motherhood, analyzing how the field of sexuality and morality manifests itself in the social role attributed to her. In a third step, it is discussed how the phenomenon of witch-hunting manifested itself as a way to control and destroy the social power conquered by women, contributing to capitalist development. In addition, this stage discusses the violence historically committed against women, intensified in the current pandemic context. For such consideration, works by authors such as Saffioti (1985, 2001, 2011), Federici (2017, 2019), and Nunes (2000) were studied. In addition, some data that assists in the composition of the arguments were also exposed.
