History of Violence against Women

March 14, 2018

10:00 AM – 3:00 PM

Lisa Smith, M.S., DVS

Violence against women has been occurring for centuries.  There are specific references to violence against women as early as 2500 B.C.  Quite often, the government and/or religious institutions sanctioned this type of behavior.   As domestic violence advocates it is essential for us to learn about and understand this long history of violence against women since it has direct implications on the treatment of women today. This session will present a global overview of the long history of violence against women.  We will look at the phenomenon of “suppressed histories” as presented by the work of Max Dashu.  The session will include a video and discussion of what is arguably the most violent chapter in this history, the witch burnings of the middle ages.  We will also present an overview of the modern day battered women’s movement and invite discussion as to where we are now and what implications does that have for current advocacy or activism.
