This article aims to establish the relationship between social isolation and the increase in violence against women during the sanitary emergency. Apparently, during the forced coexistence occurred a rapid regression of women and men to traditional roles. Data and journalistic articles reveal the output of a cultural system setting gender roles very close to traditional gender stereotypes, anchoring them to the construction of an unequal social environment. The social isolation of the first half of 2020 has shown highly alarming indicators relating to domestic violence. Through the analysis of the literature, reports, and an interview to an expert witness the actual trend seeing the downside of the role of women in society and of their civil rights has been examined. Violence as a social fact reveals itself as an attack on the identity of women, still harmful for the perpetration of gender stereotypes.
