“Musas” Publishes a New issue on Institutionalized Violence


Issue 4.2 of Musas: revista de investigación en mujer, salud y sociedad has been published under the title Violencia institucionalizada: relaciones de poder y sumisión de los cuerpos femeninos. This issue deals with violence towards women during pregnancy. In 2019, the two issues of this journal have been dedicated, in their entirety, to addressing the power relations exercised over the bodies of women throughout pregnancy and childbirth in order to achieve obedience and submission from female bodies, either as violence engaged in the couple (gender violence) or institutionalized violence committed by health institutions (obstetric violence). Also, the leading article of this issue addresses, in a summarized form, another side of violence: the bullying of LGBT youth.
