GENDER, THE STATE AND PATRIARCHY: PARTNER VIOLENCE IN MEXICO

 
9783639167733: GENDER, THE STATE AND PATRIARCHY: PARTNER VIOLENCE IN MEXICO

This book analyzes the confluence of forces that influence the State?s attempts to reduce women?s risk of partner violence in a historically defined situation characterized by structural patriarchy. Has the State been successful in challenging the existing patriarchal social structure and protecting women from partner violence? As the reader will see, the answer is not straightforward. This book focuses on the phenomenon of partner violence in Mexico and it examines the causes of partner violence at multiple levels of analysis. At the micro level it examines the characteristics of individual victims, the family and the relationship. At the macro level the focus is on the legal and social structures that define domestic violence and the State?s response. The State plays a central role as the set of institutional arrangements that define the rules of the game and that determine the possibilities for change and the potential roles and effectiveness of key actors, including the feminist movement.
