147 SEVEN Campaigns for women’s freedom from violence Introduction The women who participated in this research project have provided compelling evidence of the long-term negative effects that gendered violence is likely to have on individual women and their children across interconnected aspects of everyday life. Both the quantitative data and the women’s accounts uncover the damage caused by such violence to their mental health and identity, employment and income, and their housing and social engagement. However, their experiences are not uncommon for

41 2 Violence When the gilets jaunes first occupied roundabouts on 17 November 2018, in what was to become known as ‘Act I’ of the weekly Saturday protests they embarked on for 70 weeks, they were exercising an act of violence on their fellow citizens. In Savoy on that day, a motorist panicked as protesters tried to stop her car, and she ran over those in her way, fatally wounding one of the protesters. This 63-year-old lady, who was a novice to street protests, was the first accidental victim of the movement, with more to come over the next weekends. The

111 7 Violence History is grounded in rape and male sexual violence against women. bell hooks details the systematic and horrific rapes of Black women by white slave owners.1 Danielle McGuire provides a compelling account of the shocking levels of rape and male sexual violence inflicted by white men on Black women as a central driver within the civil rights movement (and yet so notably written out of these histories).2 We see this history of violence contained in the myths that we tell about our society, and some recent contemporary fiction has rewritten

PART II Violence, knowledge and imagining justice

Open access

The challenge of violence against women should be recognised as an issue for the state, citizenship and the whole community. This book examines how responses by the state sanction violence against women and shape a woman’s citizenship long after she has escaped from a violent partner.

Drawing from a long-term study of women’s lives in Australia, including before and after a relationship with a violent partner, it investigates the effects of intimate partner violence on aspects of everyday life including housing, employment, mental health and social participation.

The book contributes to theoretical explanations of violence against women by reframing it through the lens of sexual politics. Finally, it offers critical insights for the development of social policy and practice.

scientific ways of knowing plays a major role in diverting attention from its actual impact in intensifying structural violence. Scientism When we’re talking about the authority and cultural power of AI, we need to talk about science, especially about the ways AI is and isn’t like it. AI emulates science by collecting data and making models, but the predictions of AI diverge from scientific process; they are not the expressions of a hypothesis, a coherent theory about the way things work, but simply extrapolations from superficial patterns. There’s no cumulative

79 FIVE Gendered violence and the self Introduction As one of us sagely observed when we were planning this chapter, it would be more remarkable if a woman did not experience mental health problems as a result of intimate partner violence (IPV) rather than if she did. It is hardly earth-shattering to point out that intimate partner violence has a serious deleterious effect on women’s mental health and wellbeing. What is more noteworthy is the finding from our research that this negative impact often endures for many years afterwards. Unlike our own study
