MARTIN-BELLIDO, M Carmen. The construction of Female Empowerment: making obstetric violence visible. Temperamentvm [online]. 2020, vol.16, e13206.  Epub 06-Jun-2022. ISSN 1699-6011.


To analyze and to describe the relationship between the texts that make up Feminisms and the role of nursing in empowering women in perinatal health.


Critical and reflective analysis.


Women have poor knowledges about obstetric violence, which shows us that it is a taboo subject in the perinatal setting. To guarantee female empowerment, obstetric violence and its visibility is a principal issue, and it is essential to work from early stages of nurses and midwives’ training, as well as the inclusion of policies that focus and humanize care for women.


Female empowerment in the perinatal sphere acts as a positive factor in making violence visible, providing women with tools and knowledge about their autonomy and rights.

Palabras clave : Female Empowerment; Obstetric Violence; Perinatal Care; Feminisms.
