The women die

Male violence against women: gender stereotypes and repressive bulimia

Issue 7-8/2021

Abstract. Male violence on women is still an unsolved problem, an intrinsic character of our society. The use of criminal law (in terms of sanctions increase and limitations of defensive guarantees during trials) to face with such an issue cancels any analysis on the complexity of this problem. It also inhibits the im-provement of preventive interventions, which would more effectively bring to a required cultural change, essential to rebuild the man-woman relationship outside the pre-established roles patriarchy.

This article was submitted anonymously for evaluation by two expert reviewers, with a positive outcome.


SUMMARY: 1. Women die: from 1951 to 2710 through 2021.– 2. Saying and doing: «Let’s take back the night». – 3. Nouvelle Vague of victim paradigm and repressive bulimia.
