Addressing the diverse field of gender and violence, the current issue of Gender Forum brings together aspects of gender-based violence and its traumatic repercussions as part of our everyday society. The contributors examine various themes such as sexism, rape and murder thus leading to questions of victimhood and the representation of victims in news and mass media. While men also fall victim to rape and other forms of violence, this issue is dedicated to the investigation of violence towards women and the forms of feminist narrative that empower abused women to fight not just their abuser, but the patriarchal system at large.
