Fibe says that women and those around them can reduce the severity of these types of violence, and it is not possible to avoid, for example, something more serious like feminicide.

Often, not only the woman, but especially those around her, reduces the severity of psychological and moral violence. Women and sometimes those around them wait to help only when they arrive at that moment of physical violence. From one moment to the next this turns into a feminicide, a murder of a woman. Because, in fact, psychological violence is also very serious, moral violence is also very serious and what are these things? Cris Fibe, columnist at UOL

These are in fact crimes, provided for in the Maria da Penha Law, which protects women, and this law says: ‘psychological violence is any conduct that causes emotional harm, diminishes self-esteem, harms the development of women and aims to degrade or control women’s their actions, decisions and behaviors’. Something, unfortunately, so common in a misogynistic society like ours. Cris Fibe, columnist at UOL

She details what psychological violence and moral violence are, giving examples that range from humiliation and embarrassment to false accusations of betrayal and intimate exposure.

Threats, embarrassment, humiliation, manipulation, blackmail, limitation of the right to come and go, isolation. A series of things that can constitute psychological violence and already allow the woman to report it and also receive a protective measure to protect her from this person reacting with physical violence and seriously hurting her, sometimes with no return. Cris Fibe, columnist at UOL

And moral violence, which is slander, defamation or insult, can range from accusing a woman of cheating, issuing a moral judgment on her conduct, making false criticisms or exposing her intimate life, devaluing the victim due to the way she dresses. All of this is predicted as moral violence. Cris Fibe, columnist at UOL
