The SVRI in partnership with the University of South Australia and Raising Voices hosted an interactive webinar to reflect on the systemic influence of male perpetrated violence against women on family roles, relationships, and expectations. The webinar facilitated by Elizabeth Dartnall, explored themes that emerged at the SVRI 2017 Forum in Rio. Below are the webinar presentations and recording:
- Mothering in Domestic Violence: Why look further than attachment theory? Fiona Buchanan. 2018. (Click title to view presentation): Questions the popular use of attachment theory that ignores ethnicity, culture, class, and multiple oppressions as it categorises relationships between women and their children. This presentation offers a different way of viewing relationships between women affected by IPV and their babies, based on feminist research which preferences the lived experiences of women.
- Feminist Perspective on Intersecting Violence. Sophie Namy. 2018. (Click title to view presentation): Presents a feminist framework for understanding the intersections of violence against women and violence against children, based on lived experiences in Kampala, Uganda. Situates women’s use of violence against children within this family landscape, and offers emerging considerations for prevention programming.
