“Kvinderne, der kunne reddes”

af Astrid Plum i Føljeton d. 9.12.2022

“The reading is not pleasant, but it is not surprising either. In a new analysis, the NGO Center for Power Analysis, which stands behind the Denmark map, conclude that jealousy is the primary reason why women are murdered, based on a mapping of the 240 femicides committed in Denmark in the period 2000-2021." 

2022, 5 december

Ny analyse af danske femicides. Analysen er baseret på en kortlægning af 240 femicides mellem 2000-2021.
The analysis shows, among other things, that jealousy is the primary reason for killing women in Denmark. Download the analysis here

On the occasion of International Women's Day, we focus on violence against women. Ditte Bjerregaard is in the studio and talks about the connection between violence and power. We talk about the situation, when power turns into violence, about violence in a gender perspective, and about the structures behind physical and psychological violence.

Zetland brought an important contribution to the conversation about men's violence and killing of women. In the article, Selin Türker interviewed Ditte Bjerregaard and asked about some of the things that preceded the attempted murder a man subjected her to.  In Center for Magtanalyse, we talk about the violence we have felt on our own bodies, but we still need to bring those who perpetrate the violence on the field.

The citizens' proposal was put up on 8 March and gained 50,000 supporters in 8 days. 
Vi støtter op om borgerforslaget “ophæv tjenestemandsreformen fra 1969 – skab ligestilling mellem offentlige faggrupper” og er medstiller sammen med de berørte faggrupper.  Vi står sammen med sygeplejersker, socialrådgivere, jordmødre og pædagoger om at sige stop til politikerne som opretholder en reform fra 1969 som den dag i dag, stadigvæk skaber strukturel undertrykkelse hos ovennævnte faggrupper i form af løn ulighed og sexisme. Vi mener at ulighed er vold og tjenestemandsreformen er endnu et gennemgribende eksempel på strukturel ulighed i Danmark som sygeplejersker, jordmødre, socialrådgivere og pædagoger er underlagt.   Vi opfordrer vores følgere til at underskrive og støtte op om at bryde med den politiske skabte reform fra 1969 og derved bryde med strukturel uligeløn og strukturel sexisme.

Through the concept of fawning, the co-founder of the association, Ditte Bjerregaard, tackles why you cannot always speak out when you are exposed to violence, and shows how non-physical forms of resistance are also resistance.

Section 1 offers an introduction to the 16 days of activism against violence. You will meet Ditte and Sølve from Center for magtanalyse and hear more about our violence prevention work.

On today's episode Asta Selloane Sekamane and Golda Fania from Afro Danish Collective will share with us how racism leads to violence. My co-hosts will talk about ways to dismantle structures of oppressions and teach us how dismantling racism begins with individuals not reproducing racist slurs, micro-aggressions and actively becoming anti-racists.

In today's episode, Monalisa Larsen will give us an insight into how she, as a cook, woman, sexual, as well as ethnic minority person in Denmark, has experienced that the jokes in the workplace were often based on making fun of people like her. We need to hear more about how creative, hectic and unsafe workplaces create the basis for environments, where the line between fun and violence is indefinable. Monalisa tells that if you speak out against phobic comments, you may risk being shamed and excluded from the community, which in the end may mean that you have to leave your workplace.

In today's episode, Chris Poole, project manager for Women fight back! gives us an insight into what women's resistance looks like. It is important to focus on women's resistance to violence, because it is often made invisible, either by blaming the victim, or asking if she had anything to do with the violence. The lack of visibility of women's resistance may also be about the fact that resistance is often related to a form of physical rejection. Chris defines resistance as a wide range of actions from bodily rejections, e.g. turning one's back on a person, or a verbal no to physical resistance such as kicking or pushing. It can be said that women's resistance is difficult to identify because women are constantly resisting violence, which is why we need to talk more about why women's boundaries and bodily autonomy are not respected.

In today's episode you will meet Maia Kahlke Lorentzen who is one of the experts behind the Cybernauts. Among other things, we will talk about whether violence on the internet can be compared to violence in the real world. Maia gives us an insight into what happens when you interfere in online debates with feminist or power-critical perspectives, and how digital threats of rape, stalking and organised attacks against individuals hinder women's democratic presence and development in society.

 11. Men's Allyship against ViolenceDownload

In today's episode, rapper, poet and comedian Morten Humme will give us an insight into how misogynistic language in music and jokes surrounding violence against women, are a fertile ground for violence. Morten and I have both been exposed to men's violence and we will talk a lot about the importance of men's alliance in the work against violence.

 

In today's episode you will meet Paige and "D" who will talk about their experiences as young trans women. Many LGBTQIA+ people live with minority stress because they find themselves in a society that does not recognise gender or sexual diversity. Something cis people can do to create an inclusive society is to use and recognise the respective pronouns of transgender and non-binary people and understand what e.g. AMAB and AFAB mean.

In the last section, of the 16 days, I will review some of the overall points of the previous 15 sections. I want to challenge the current concept of violence and contribute with a new understanding of violence where language and forms of discrimination such as sexism, racism, fatphobia, transphobia must be understood as forms of violence on an equal footing with physical forms of violence. I want to elaborate, give examples and come up with a proposal for what we can do in the future in the fight to stop violence in Denmark.

Remember that we offer free group courses at Center for magtanalyse, and individual talks at our department Talking about Violence. Thank you for listening.

2. Violence and Crisis AssistanceDownload

Lisbeth Jessen from Dannerhuset gives us an insight into what violence and crisis are. Among other things, we will hear about the dynamics of the violence, and we will hear more about the reason why most women only contact crisis help after 5 years of violence.

 

On today's episode Noura Bittar Søborg will show us what the Danish labour market looks like from an outside perspective. Noura has a long education and background within human rights advocacy, yet it is nearly impossible for her to find work in Denmark with a status as a Syrian refugee.

 

In today's episode, we will meet Sherin Khankan, who is a sociologist of religion, founder of Exitcirklen and the driving force behind Scandinavia's first women's mosque, the Mariam Mosque. Sherin will give us an insight into what psychological violence is. Among other things, we will hear about how violence always starts with psychological violence. We must also dispel some myths, about how violence by ethnic minorities is 'worse' than violence by the ethnic Danish majority.

 

8. Women in WarDownload

In today's episode, Saime from Seve Kurdish Women's Association will give us an insight into why women go to war. The women fighters from Kurdistan are not only fighting IS, they are fighting a 5000-year-old history of male supremacy, violence and dominance. The Kurdish women in Rojava seek to implement a 'democratic confederalism' which means a new social order, where the human being is at the center, free from patriarchal and capitalist exploitation.

In today's episode, you will meet Henriette Højberg, director and founder of the organisation DareGender. Henriette will give us an insight into what men's violence is, and how violence and masculinity are closely related. At DareGender, they work to prevent violence by redefining stereotypical masculinities, among other things. Constructing new understandings of masculinity will therefore help to prevent violence against women, minorities and men

 

In today's episode, you will meet my sister Anne-Sophie Bjerregaard. We talk about obesity, obesity activism and obesity phobia. Today we examine how norms that equate fatness with unhealthiness are uncritically reproduced in social and scientific contexts. A serious effect of this is that some fat people experience stress and isolation on the basis of the disease-causing rhetoric, which has psychological, physical and social consequences for the people.

 

 

In today's episode, Pinoe Andersen from Københavns Unge Feminister (Copenhagen's Young Feminists) and I will talk about the relationship between language and violence. We try to stretch our understanding of violence to its extreme points to examine what happens when our activism is being called an idealistic and naive youth rebellion.

 

In today's episode, you will meet Jelena Bundalovic and Lærke Thrysøe Nielsen from Tænketanken Tora. We will talk about how we can support victims of violence. This episode is a testimony that as soon as we are ready to listen to things that are hard to listen to, such as things that are filled with pain, vulnerability and anger, together we can expand our collective consciousness and create a society with less inequality, discrimination and violence.
