Through the construction of public policy agendas and further analysis, this text highlights historical aspects which developed into a huge popular movement in the 1990s against child sexual violence, giving birth to the National Child Sexual Violence Combat Plan as an intersector public policy and the decade of 2000 devoted to its implementation.
