Abstract 0

Exhuming, denaturalizing, historicizing, and politicizing women's violence implicitly means pointing out something fundamentally unthought that undergirds a major share of the research on violence. Such studies tend to consider only masculine forms of violence and relegate the minority participation of women to the margins without noting the gendered dimension of the categories in use. The task before us, then, is not only to qualify the minimal participation of women by showing their more active role, but also to interrogate the social order that undergirds the assignation of women to the position of "a-violence," not to be confused with the political position of nonviolence . . .
