(p.197) Chapter 7 Gendered Divides
Sheltering Women
Stanford University Press

This chapter studies how gender provides a new context in which to consider the flexible approach to modernity and tradition and its possible implications for anthropology. It looks at the challenges for gender uniformity and the efforts of feminists to accept new ways to combine gender with the study of power, difference, and politics. It then reviews the key points that were made throughout the book on intimate partner violence and studies the spatial displacement of gendered violence throughout Italy. This chapter also talks about different layers of shame and makes some suggestions to help future researchers studying violence.

Keywords:   gender, anthropology, gender uniformity, intimate partner violence, spatial displacement, gendered violence, shame
