Gender based Violence, Violence against Women. The articulation of power relations in domestic, national and international spaces

07.02.2018 / Created by (EMWF)

Feminist theories of international relations analyse power relations on a global scale and articulate the domestic, national and international spheres, believing that "realism" is a discourse that makes women invisible in politics. These theories reject any feminine specificity in relation to peace or aggression arguing that war is rooted in the patriarchal and military structures that are supported by both men and women. They also show the link between domestic, national and international violence and challenge the war / peace dichotomy that denies the disorder of social and political life, privatize and depoliticize gender insecurity. Rape is a weapon of war used on women’s bodies as a battlefield. But the violence is also structural, exerted by the globalized economy that deprives women of safety and makes women’s lives a commodity that can be exchanged, used and abused.
