Gender violence is still an unsolved problem in Spain, and its impact on youth (from the perspective of both the prevention and the approach of cases) is one of the main challenges. Different government actions have been directed in this regard, however, there is still a reductionist concept of this social violence. Violence is publicly presented as physical type phenomenon, which happens only in older — and that impression difficult youth to identify gender problems in their relationships. This work has been addressed by the survey technique, and the main objective is to determine how young students develop the problem of gender violence. The results indicate that against a great identification of physical violence as a form of violence, some cultural practices —such as sexual harassment in the street— are not recognized as gender aggression, or some forms of economic violence. In addition, students have some negative perceptions regarding the possible eradication of gender violence in society.
