Intergenerational Dialogue: Recent Feminist Actions in Response to Phallocentric Violence Against Women. From Academics to Political Action

Panel abstract

Violence against women has produced a considerable number of victims in the Western World. Latin American and Caribbean countries have witnessed thousands of sexual and femicide violence that have been denounced by leaders of the feminist movements for more than four decades. Unfortunately with little attention from the governments, conservative or with left tendencies. The lack of response from the governments has generated an ever more loud and aggressive response, especially from young feminists who have organized themselves demanding justice and security. In this Panel we will analyse the struggles and organization of young feminists that have emerged from Latin America and have transcended the region. We will use an auto-ethnographic methodology. The Panel is an invitation to old and new activists to share their views on the current feminist movements against violence through their personal experience. Violence against women is probably the one political problem prevalent in most countries in the world. Therefore we want to initiate a dialogue that includes the intergenerational and intersectionality aspects related to the link between Anthropology as an academic discipline and the activism that is currently fighting for human rights.
