The complexity of crack consumption has generated great challenges for managers. The objective of this study was to analyze, based on a ten-year literature review, gender issues and vulnerability conditions associated with this consumption. By searching on LILACS, PUBMED and PSYCINFO databases, 114 articles were located, of which 20 were selected. The results of those studies show that, instead of vulnerability, risk factors arise as cause for the development of abuse or dependence on psychoactive substances, as well as protective factors, which are evaluated here as for the construction of public policies for that population.
