Comparative Perspectives on Gender Violence

Nia Parson

Oxford University Press

Based on ethnographic research in Santiago, Chile, this analysis shows how economic intimate partner abuse is a particular form of gendered violence that is often invisible but has grave effects for women, constraining their everyday lives and possibilities in ways that are beyond the reach of judicial interventions. This chapter illuminates some of the ways that structural and intimate partner abuse are interconnected in the lives of some Chilean women and situates their suffering within the broader historical, political, and economic contexts of novel and evolving judicial interventions around partner abuse. By highlighting the gravity of abuses that are outside of the purview of the judicial system, this chapter puts forward a call to attend to how judicial interventions provide only some solutions for women who suffer intimate partner abuse in Chile.
