The issue of gender violence has an important historic and social dimension. The social development of the last decades has allowed us to overcome the old male patriarchal order, but the woman continues to suffer a subordinate and submissive position towards the man in many situations of daily life, violence being a habitual expression of this relation of inferiority. Thus, public intervention becomes an essential support in the evaluation of this problem because it defines the political measures necessary to achieve a more egalitarian society that results in a higher level of well-being. The main objective of this work is to analyze the resources of the Spanish Public Administration in relation to gender violence as well as its effectiveness. The public measures analyzed show that, despite the great advances in the development of effective social policies, there is still a long way to go in the fight against gender violence.
