This thesis explores what psychological violence against women in heterosexual relationships looks like in today's Sweden. The thesis explores how psychological violence against women in heterosexual relationships are interpreted and influenced by gender, class, ethnicity,and age through interviews with 12 women who have worked with women or girls who have been subjected to threats and physical,psychological,and sexual violence in Sweden. I have conducted a qualitative method in the form of semi-structured interviews to achievethe purpose of this study. Through an intersectional perspective and theories of hegemonic masculinity I analyze the discourses of the various psychological violence which have been described in the interviewee’s experiences basis on three main themes: isolation and controlling behavior, the derogatory discourse,threats and intimidation.In addition, I examine how marginalized groups, such as women with disabilities, older women, and working-class women have been affected by psychological violence in heterosexual relationships. As result,psychological violence is identified through unequal power relationships between women and men. (Less)
