From Misogyny to Murder: Everyday Sexism and Femicide in a Cross-Cultural Context

  • Author(s): Rodriguez, Gilda
  • et al.
Abstract

The author argues that commonplace sexist practices lay the conditions for femicide and the political discourses that surround it. She examines two case studies: the over five hundred femicides that have occurred in the border city of Juarez, Mexico since 1993 and George Sodini's murder of three women in a gym in a suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
