Violence, Colonialism and Genocide

Responses to Gender Violence
Thomas fuller:
In medieval times a husbands duty to punish his wife
Historical anecdotes tell us violence against women has a long history and that it is not
contemporary, structural violence, built into our institution
Key themes: to understand violence we have to do much more than think about gender relation
and patriarchy to understand gender violence
Women of colour treated less fairly, men of colour more likely to be charged than white men for
abuse.
Unsafe for women of colour to report violence in marriage because of racism, complex dynamic
Justice system makes it difficult for coloured women to report incidents of abuse
Reasons that women of colour might be less likely to report violencelanguage, financial,
sponsored, isolated, not accessible service, no knowledge of rights
Reena Virk: murdered bullied, didnt mention that she suffered racism, taken up as act of girl
violence, epidemic in girl violence.
Ignored the fact that a man was involved, situates perpetrators as victims, no race analysis
Racism was a factor because the girls burned a cigarette on her forehead trying to make the hindu
tradition of something on their forehead
Did not target the source of the problem which was racism
If an issue is addressed that people in public who consume the literature should respond
Andrea smiths article: talks about gender violence, takes about colonialism in cultural genocide
and their importance
Stolen Sisters: indigenous womens in Canada who go on missing, puts the stories of missing
women in political context
