The violence perpetrated against the women based on gender is a social and structural problem, that manifests it self in many ways, such as physical, sexual, patrimonial, psychological and moral, according to the Law no 11.340/2006, Maria da Penha Law. However, there is also a symbolic violence, which acts to maintain the status quo, in which women are subjugated. In this dissertation there is a discussion on media revictimization of women in journalistic coverage. Media revitimization occurs when news coverage about violence against women exceeds the fact, showing details of the victim's intimate life, details that invade her privacy and/or disqualify and blame her. This leads to a new violence against this woman, which occurs as a result of the first. This violence practiced by the media is a symbolic violence, responsible for maintaining a structure of discrimination, since it occurs in a subtle way and reinforces in the collective imagination the discrimination against women. Women in the plural, because discrimination against women is structured on systems of power intersection, affecting gender, race, class and sexuality relations. In this perspective, conceptual discussions permeate the fields of Human Rights, of law, sociology and communication. The documentary material analyzed demonstrates the neglected occurrence of violence. The results achieved demonstrate that the regulation of the media and the regulation of the articles of the Constitution of the Federative Republic of Brazil in 1988 - CF/88 on the media, are a possibility of overcoming the problem of media revictimization and consequently point to another way of communication.
