Abstract This piece of research reconstructs the protection strategies in urban contexts from fragments of life histories from two women, victims of the social and political violence. For such a purpose, a feminist methodology in community psychology was used, which recognizes, in the feminist discourse, the life experience as a source of legitimate knowledge (Campbell & Wasco, 2000). The results make evident that women use protection strategies based on the knowledge built in their life experience, their place of origin, and the power relationships. It reveals the relevance of researching on urban violence.

Esta investigación reconstruye las estrategias de protección en contextos urbanos desde fragmentos de la historia de vida de dos mujeres víctimas de la violencia social y política, para ello se usó la metodologia feminista en psicologia comunitaria, la cual reconoce en el discurso femenino, la experiencia de vida como fuente de saberes legitimos. (Campbell & Wasco, 2000). Los resultados evidencian que las mujeres utilizan estrategias de protección basadas en los saberes construidos en su experiencia de vida, su sitio de origen y las relaciones de poder. Pone de manifiesto la relevancia de investigar sobre la violencia urbana.
