Abstract: This research analyzes the combat against the issue of violence against women in Chile. On the one hand it examines to what extent Michelle Bachelet has been able to play an active role in combating gender violence during her two presidencies. On the other hand the success of the mobilized civil society will be examined to evaluate its influential role. Finally, throughout the essay there is a special focus on the relation between the civil society and the state, and if they have been able to cooperate and advance the combat against gender violence in Chile.
