A critical narrative qualitative methodology is presented as a possible and coherent format with the theoretical bases of feminisms, to show the political and ethical importance of feminist projects, especially the commitment to the social change of feminist methodology, and to the Research in general. With an epistemological basis in the principles and criteria of social constructivism, Post-Structural Feminism and Queer Theory, the methodology used as an example for this discussion was applied in a doctoral study that investigated the process of construction-deconstruction of masculine subjectivities with a Therapeutic approach, within the framework of a public program of care for men who exercised violence against women. Through this empirical example, it was observed that this analytical format offers tools for a critical reflection on feminist methodologies. It was established that the use of this specific methodology allows a better visualization of the problem of violence. It highlights the need for new paradigms that promote ethical and political commitment, which include contributions and allow dialogue with feminist historical advances and studies of men and masculinities.
