Webinar (CPRLV): Discourse and gender-based violence

Discourse and gender-based violence : what issues for social polarization and prevention of radicalization leading to violence?

Recent events have shown that the question of gender remains a polarizing issue, open to political instrumentalization by the more conservative parts of the political spectrum and society in general. Indeed, while some politicians and activists are in favor of greater inclusion of gender minorities, the fact remains that reflection on this theme crystallizes forms of hatred and violence within extreme ideologies. The latter are deeply hostile to any form of discourse or action (scientific, militant, political, or artistic) that questions the traditional vision of gender (the relationship between women and men, sexual orientation, gender expression or identity, for example). What’s more, these same ideologies promote, in their own very specific way, a vision centered and articulated around a traditionalist vision of gender conceived as being fixed in time. For some ideologies, this vision fosters hate speech against women, LGBTQ+ people and, more broadly, progressive movements. In some cases, violent acts have been committed in support of this vision of gender. The aim of this webinar will therefore be to encourage reflection on the various tensions that can be observed in society around the question of gender, and to shed light on the various manifestations of hatred and violence based on gender within extreme ideologies.

Specific objectives :

Understand the issues surrounding the gender question
