The emergence of Law 11.340/06 also known as the "Maria da Penha" law that regulates and criminalizes domestic violence appears as a founding guideline for some projects developed in Pentecostal and neo-Pentecostal churches. The projects bring together a team of professionals such as lawyers, psychologists and social workers, and aim to offer legal and psychological assistance to women seeking assistance in police stations called "women's police stations". I intend to analyze - from a set of materials produced by the projects, ranging from thematic meetings to reports published as biographical books -, the production of pedagogies for the political action of women, something that has unfolded in the occupation by the leaders of these same projects, of public positions in municipal, state and federal legislative houses. In this process, the divorce category isdraws as a first path for learning the healthy heterosexual relationship, and the necessary step towards conversion. The concept of healthy affectivity and the constant development of a pedagogy that aims to care for oneself becomes substantial languages of production for a female subject who must move away from the legal condition of subject of suffering to assume the public report as a "civil believer".
