By: Alena and Nathan
There are many problems that occur in the world we live in today.
However, one issue that many people fear is violence and the inequality
of gender. Females are more likely to be hurt or feel threatened by
males and there have also been many incidents in which men have
demonstrated gender violence. Our presentation includes facts and
different types of problems that go around the theme of gender and
inequality We will also be talking about the different situations that are

Feminism and
Gendered Violence
Feminist sociologists VS. Violence
against women
Feminist sociologists have been
especially effective in bringing this issue
into the public's attention
Violence against women => Some use
symbolic interactionism and conflict
theory to promote violence.
Some use SI to associate men's strength
with violence as is done in many
Conflict Theory: Men are losing power
and some men turn violently against
women as a resistance and protection.
There is no certain
solution for this problem
of gendered violence.
However, there are
some solutions that are
effective. Any solutions
must break the
connection between
violence and manliness.
It is difficult to be
optimistic that change
will come any time soon
because of violent
messages and icons
