Concept formation


This paper analyzes different types of violence: domestic violence, institutional violence and femicide to show how gender violence against Yucatan’s women is not only part of the domestic environment, but is also part of institutional environments and found in collective representations. To achieve this, the concept "gender violence against women" is used for analysis in combination with the spheres of violence as proposed by Johan Galtung: interpersonal or direct, structural and cultural/symbolic. Because women are objectified in these spheres, extreme violence and even feminicide are possible.
