As I was Saying…

July 29, 2012 by and tagged

in my post yesterday… patriarchal violence:

“A man who had recently separated from his wife shot his two children, killing his seven-year-old daughter, before turning the gun on himself, prosecutors said.”

This is the cultural equivalent of acid-throwers in Pakistan: loss of patriarchal control triggering extreme violence.

    You might be interested in this interview with a researcher about her work on ‘familicide’ (men who kill their children), which explores these issues of gender and family violence.
