Example text

I am a white woman from a large working-class industrial town in the north of England, living in Glasgow, in a relationship, working as an academic and the mother of three (almost four) children. I have been active in the field of violence against women for 19 years, having previously volunteered and worked in Women’s Aid refuges and conducted research for the then Scottish Executive on male domestic abuse. 38 Research Methodology When working at the refuges I had daily contact with women and their children who were fleeing domestic violence.

37 Young People’s Understandings of Men’s Violence Against Women of women, this position is transferable to the concept of empowering children and young people. It is critical to reiterate that the claims to personal knowledge are not the same as personal experience. Although it is likely that some/many of the young people involved in this research may have experienced forms of men’s violence, their own personal narratives are not the focus. A caveat has to be made here to emphasise that young people are not ‘experts’ in men’s violence against women per se, but are acknowledged as being ‘experts in their own lives’ (Langsted 1994: 42) and as such are ‘experts’ in expressing their own opinions.

Halberstam (1998) adopted the phrase, ‘female masculinity’ to challenge the presumption that masculinity belonged entirely to men to create new masculinities for women as it was this identity that was most privileged. The main crux of it being that masculinity is valorised in our society and femininity is not and positioned in opposition to it. However, Hester (1992) sought to demonstrate that sex and gender can be used interchangeably because it is not the biological differences but the social meanings attached to the categories which gives them their meaning.
