Genre: Social Science

More than 600 women and girls have been murdered and more than 1,000 have disappeared in the Mexican state of Chihuahua since 1993. Violence against women has increased throughout Mexico and in other countries, including Argentina, Costa Rica, Guatemala, and Peru. Law enforcement officials have often failed or refused to undertake investigations and prosecutions, creating a climate of impunity for perpetrators and denying truth and justice to survivors of violence and victims’ relatives. Terrorizing Women is an impassioned yet rigorously analytical response to the escalation in violence against women in Latin America during the past two decades. It is part of a feminist effort to categorize violence rooted in gendered power structures as a violation of human rights. The analytical framework of feminicide is crucial to that effort, as the editors explain in their introduction. They define feminicide as gender-based violence that implicates both the state (directly or indirectly) and individual perpetrators. It is structural violence rooted in social, political, economic, and cultural inequalities. Terrorizing Women brings together essays by feminist and human rights activists, attorneys, and scholars from Latin America and the United States, as well as testimonios by relatives of women who were disappeared or murdered. In addition to investigating egregious violations of women’s human rights, the contributors consider feminicide in relation to neoliberal economic policies, the violent legacies of military regimes, and the sexual fetishization of women’s bodies. They suggest strategies for confronting feminicide; propose legal, political, and social routes for redressing injustices; and track alternative remedies generated by the communities affected by gender-based violence. In a photo essay portraying the justice movement in Chihuahua, relatives of disappeared and murdered women bear witness to feminicide and demand accountability.

Reimagining Theologies of Marriage in Contexts of Domestic Violence

Author: Rachel Starr
Publisher: Routledge
ISBN: 9781317068556
Release Date: 2018-04-15
Genre: Religion

Domestic violence is a significant threat to women’s survival. But Christian understandings of marriage often prevent women from resisting abusive relationships. Can the Church’s teaching on marriage be reshaped so that it helps women to survive, rather than encourage them to submit to their husband, bear their cross, or sacrifice themselves for the sake of their marriage? Focusing on everyday practices of marriage in two very different contexts: Argentina and England, Reimagining Theologies of Marriage in Contexts of Domestic Violence considers how Christian understandings of marriage as a covenant or sacrament relate to the lived experience of marriage. Drawing on Augustine’s notion of the goods of marriage, and on belief in the saving power of marriage, this book suggests that only when the wellbeing of bodies is central to a marriage can it have the power to save.

This book analyzes the scope and dynamics of violence against women in Guatemala as well as how it is represented in the print media. It reveals the ways in which these reports reproduce narratives of terror that conceal the gendered nature of violence against women and reproduce dichotomous gendered narratives of “good” and “bad” girls.

The New Voices Seminar is a lively, intergenerational, and diverse group of women scholars who take an interdisciplinary approach to the study of Christianity.

Gendering Globalization on the Ground

Author: Gay Young
Publisher: Routledge
ISBN: 9781317610229
Release Date: 2014-11-13
Genre: Social Science

How has globalization worked for women working on the frontlines of neoliberalism on the Mexico-US border? This border divides "US" from "Others," and produces social inequalities that form a site where marginalized border women encounter the othering power of neoliberalism and confront inequalities of gender and class. Within this context, a critical comparison of socially similar women, working either in export production industries or in small-scale commerce and low-level services in Ciudad Juárez, reveals how export factory work constrains women’s empowerment at home – as well as the wages they earn and the well-being of their households. This volume challenges the neoliberal rationale of "empowering" women to support market growth, and argues instead for understanding women’s empowerment as a process of transformation from disempowerment by gender power relations to challenging masculinist domination in households and, ultimately, the economy and society. Because structures of gender and globalization are mutually constituted, women’s empowerment as gender democracy is integral to producing alternative, democratic globalization. Using a feminist methodology that gives attention to the standpoint of women located on the downside of social hierarchies and takes into account strategically diverse points of view, this study develops analysis to counter neoliberal globalization as it touches down in the lives of ordinary women and men on the border and beyond.

In vielen Staaten gehören Unterdrückungsmaßnahmen schon fast zur Routine: Regierungen unterbinden freie Meinungsäußerungen in der Presse und im Internet unter Hinweis auf die nationale Sicherheit. Sie gehen gegen Kritiker vor, verhaften Journalisten und andere, bedrohen sie mit Folter und manchmal mit Tod. Diese Politik, die das Menschenrecht der Meinungsfreiheit massiv verletzt, gab es in dem weiterhin von Kriegen und Flüchtlingsnot gekennzeichneten Jahr 2017 auf allen Kontinenten. Der neue Report von Amnesty International gibt Auskunft über die Situation der Menschenrechte in ca. 160 Staaten und ist eine wichtige Grundlage für alle, die sich für die Menschenrechte interessieren und sie durch politische Entscheidungen oder freiwilliges Engagement verändern wollen. Zugleich fordert der Report dazu auf, die Menschenrechte zu respektieren und für sie einzustehen. Eine Bestandsaufnahme zur weltweiten Lage der Menschenrechte

Aber unabhangig davon, ob sie eine >Wahrheit des Lagers abzubilden vermogen, muss man sie als einzigartige Bild-Akte verstehen: als den Versuch, unter ausserster Gefahr ein Signal nach aussen zu richten. Dann geben sich die vier erhaltenen Fotografien als Uberreste zu erkennen, was sie von den tausenden von Aufnahmen unterscheidet, welche die SS selbst von den Lagern anfertigen liess und von denen man kurz vor der Befreiung in einer hastigen Aktion noch so viel wie moglich vernichtete. Die vier Fotografien sind Uberreste von einem Ort, an dem man alles daran setzte, die Ereignisse durch eine gewaltige Maschinerie der Des-Imagination
