PhD defence: Gender Inequality, Homophobia and Violence: the three pillars of patriarchal norms and attitudes and their relations

14 March 2019 | 16:00 - 17:30

Ms. Asa Ekvall’s research studies how attitudes to gender (in)equality, heteronormativity and various types of violence are related to each other. Specific attention is given in the paper to the relations between patriarchal attitudes and violent conflict, next to the more often studied relations between patriarchy and violence against women and gay men. It also investigates possibilities to change patriarchal attitudes towards gender, heteronormativity and violence, making them more egalitarian.
