Gender-based violence has become expressive in recent decades and, therefore, generated debate in society. The population's comprehension of this theme is invariably permeated by processes of moral judgment and can be crossed by several factors. Despite the growing number of studies on gender-based violence, the factors that influence moral judgment about violence still unclear. The present study aims to verify, through a self-report scale, the men and women moral judgment about violence and to assess whether it is modulated by the ingroup/outgroup phenomenon and/or moderated by gender stereotypes and ideological profile. This way, we aim to answer the questions: Do people judge same-sex aggression differently from aggressions in which aggressor and victim have different sexes? Do liberal people judge aggression differently than conservative people? And, finally, do people who perceive men and women as stereotyped judge aggression differently from those who do not?
