Abstract

Gendered violence is defined as violence that is perpetuated on women across all societies, communities and groups and that is justified on the basis of sex differences. Various authors have stressed the fact that sexual categories are social constructs that act as a lens through which we model, shape and behave in the world. Gender violence is considered a violation of human rights as it denies equality, security, dignity and the right of individuals to enjoy their fundamental freedoms and rights. Within the policies of the European Union whose goal of preventing and combating violence against women has been pronounced, the project Empower has been instituted in order to break the cycle of violence and victimization passed from the mother to the daughter through the use of psychodrama techniques.
