Honor-related violence and oppression in Sweden- A qualitative study of women's shelters and shelters work

This bachelor essay is intended to investigate how different women's shelters are working with women and girls with honor problematic. Honour-related violence is different from domestic violence. Honour-related violence began to attract attention very early 21-st century when the murder of Fadime occurred and affected both nationally and internationally. Social services chief contribution is to place women and girls in women's shelters and shelters.
We have made a quantitative study in which we have examined six different organisations, four women´s shelters and two shelters. As the violence and oppression is so complex and has great ties to the culture we wanted to explore how the women's shelters was working with this problem. We have illustrated our analysis with help of intersectionality and our previous research. Choosing the intersectional perspective were obvious for us, as it explains the power aspect and differences from multiple perspectives and not just from a gender- or from a cultural perspective. A brief summary of our conclusion was the lack of resources for a full successful work with these women and girls. Although lack of knowledge about working with the family, we found that the problem with honor violence was about family and community. The different types of shelters worked to promote women and girls continued independent lives. A life that our respondents explained could be very lonely for the women and the girls. The thought of losing the family was something that was common for most of our respondents. Did they have to choose either or? To Keep the family and live in oppression or live their independent lives, but feel completely alone? (Less)
