Abstract

Gendered violence is experienced personally and systemically, including gender discrimination, domestic violence, sexual violence, conflict related violence, and wartime rape. These continuums of violence exist in times of peace, in times of war, within families, and within state institutions. While continuums of violence vary among cultures and societies, gender-based violence is ubiquitous. How one understands violence is key to understanding how the lived experiences of individuals are at once, personal and political. This chapter focusses on the links between “everyday” gender-based violence and violence associated with war as part of continuums of violence. The authors consider gender-based violence in the public and political realm as manifestations of private and personal violence, not as separate categories of violence, but as reflective of gendered social processes that form continuums of violence.
