Violence against women has been an unseen phenomenon for decades. Even today it remains being difficult to identify. Thus, In the Second World Conference about the Status of women celebrated in Copenhagen in 1980 referred this type of abuse as "the most silenced crime in the world." We, as nurses guided by legal, ethical and deontological knowledge, and with other professionals, notice theimmense importance of defending the Human Rights and because of that, this issue is the reason for this study in which we try to summarize the various State Protection Systems in order to get our ultimate goal: to approach the professional nurse who reads these lines to the knowledge of these systems and the knowledge of the context of gender violence. The technique used in this review is a content analysis procedure, within its thematic category which is basedon reading as a tool of data collection; reading that has to be done following the scientific method, i.e. it must be systematic, objective and valid. All these State Protective devices are relevant, but we must remember one important aspect: theinter disciplinary health team which includes among the set of nursing that, realizing of this devices, can become in a prominent ally in women's ensuring security and integrity.
