Violence against Women - Social Perception and Institutional Help in Germany and France since the 1970s (working title).

In her 1974 book Scream Quietly or the Neighbors Will Hear, British author Erin Pizzey describes her experiences as the founder of the first women's shelter in Great Britain. Her book was not only translated into numerous languages, including German and French, but also received international (mass) media attention and inspired women to found other women's shelters: The first German women's shelter opened in West Berlin in 1976, for example, and the first French women's shelter opened in Clichy in 1978. On the one hand, the example of Erin Pizzey points to the central role of the media and the public in making violence against women visible. On the other hand, it shows that a story about violence against women cannot do without a transnational perspective. The doctoral project sees itself as a history of perception of (intimate partner) violence against women. In a German-French comparison, it asks, on the one hand, how the topic was able to reach the public and become a public issue in the 1970s; the founding of women's shelter initiatives plays a decisive role here. Although the necessity of these and other aid institutions was soon no longer disputed, a number of disputes were nevertheless conducted about them in the period that followed. On the other hand, the project analyzes the change in perception of the phenomenon and the change in debates about violence against women up to the early 2000s. In this way, the work tells a history of the (political) thematizability of violence against women. The comparative approach makes it possible to ask about transnational commonalities as well as national specifics. In addition, the local level plays a decisive role. On the basis of selected case studies, the work analyzes paradigmatic developments in the emergence and development of aid institutions as well as the debates conducted around them.
