This article reviews various approaches to the study of gender violence coming from a sociological point of view. The review is a partial, diachronic reconstruction of the international debate since the 1970s, including the contribution of Black Feminism, Latin American Studies and Gender Migration Studies. We propose to consider gender intersectional asymmetries, including those related to cultural and social groups, to class, age, sexual orientation and legal status.

Abstract

This article reviews various approaches to the study of gender violence coming from a sociological point of view. The review is a partial, diachronic reconstruction of the international debate since the 1970s, including the contribution of Black Feminism, Latin American Studies and Gender Migration Studies. We propose to consider gender intersectional asymmetries, including those related to cultural and social groups, to class, age, sexual orientation and legal status. This review assumes symbolic violence as a theoretical perspective.
