The problem of women violence requires cultural and educational responses ahead the legal-repressive ones. Violence against women is an attempt to erase their identity and to undermine their independence and freedom of choice. Education, moreover, highlights the Europe’s inability to develop a true gender equality and it indicates as well, the needs to find new pathways that may give a sense to the existence of a woman as woman and it may give meaning to worlds as "equal opportunities", "gender difference", "self-determination" declaring zero tolerance towards all levels of violence against women and activating at the same time concerted actions among those active in policy, in culture and in education. In these circumstances will it be possible to sustain and enhance the values that during centuries, although constantly evolving, characterized our "desire to be" in the whole of meanings which we always aimed to construct?
