According to the editors of the book Gender and Violence in Spanish Culture: From Vulnerability to Accountability, María José Gámez Fuentes (Universitat Jaume I, Castellón, Spain) and Rebeca Maseda García (University of Alaska Anchorage), for the true exercise of citizenship to occur, gender violence must be eradicated as it is not an interpersonal problem, but an attack on the very concept of democracy.
The book features contributions from various specialists in violence and gender disciplines and offers an interdisciplinary approach to the debate on patriarchal violence. In particular, the chapters analyse the complex intersections between cultural representations (in media, art, film, press, internet, etc.), civil society, activism, state discourse and theory; and they offer a review of the spaces of political and narrative resistance.
Rebeca Maseda García is Associate Professor of Spanish at UAA. She is the author of Ensayo sobre la contradicción: Virginia Woolf en la pantalla, and she has published numerous articles on film and gender, representations of trauma, and historical memory.
