Feminist Interventions for Southeast Asian Women Trauma Survivors: Deconstructing Gender-Based Violence and Developing Structures of Peace.
Norsworthy, Kathryn L.
An analysis of structural and institutional violence against women in three cultures in Southeast Asia, Thailand, Cambodia, and among refugees of Burma, was generated by groups of women and men from these countries. Group members also discussed strategies for transforming systems supporting gender-based violence into structures of peace and gender-justice. The author describes the model, based on principles from liberation theory and feminist psychology, used to facilitate these discussion groups. The analysis of factors and societal systems that support structural and institutional gender-based violence is also presented along with group members recommended strategies for social change.
