A return of knowledge : a case study of Honduran women subjected to domestic violence

Philipson, Lena (2003)
Department of Sociology of Law
Abstract
This paper is a report from a Minor Field Study conducted in Santa Rosa de Copán, Honduras. I conducted semi-structured interviews with women subjected to domestic violence with the objective of finding out and highlighting their view on the problem of domestic violence, the Law against Domestic Violence and the institutions connected to it. I further conducted interviews with different professionals working at institutions related to the Law against Domestic Violence. In the analysis I use theories by Michel Foucault and Carol Smart as a frame when putting the view of the women against the power of the law and the work of the institutions in order to expose criticism based on the specific knowledges of the women concerned.
