Domestic Violence in Cinema

The United Nations General Assembly has designated November 25 as the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women. The premise of the day is to raise awareness of the fact that women around the world are subject to rape, domestic violence and other forms of violence; furthermore, one of the aims of the day is to highlight that the scale and true nature of the issue is often hidden. In honour of this day, we decided to publish a thematic article by Anhelina Shablouskaya on this issue.


REPRESENTATION OF DOMESTIC VIOLENCE AND THE AMBIVALENCE OF TAKING PLEASURE (ON THE EXAMPLE OF HOLLYWOOD MOVIES 2017)

The global pandemic of the actualization of domestic violence has its roots in the United States, where the problem of male violence against women is seriously engaged. Since 1991, The Center for Women’s Global Leadership (CWGL) has been organizing the 16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence campaign, which runs from November 25th, International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, to December 16th. The essence of the action is to support the orange solidarity symbol as a signal of an immediate end to violence against women and girls. In this vein, it is worth asking the question, where does the violence begin?

Movies about violence in Hollywood are quite a favorite genre. The accessibility and widespread distribution of Hollywood films covers the entire world audience, which justifies its choice as an object of study. The very problem of domestic violence against partners is perceived acutely by the audience, it does not matter if the violence is real or is it on the screen, the fact of violence has taken place: violence always remains violence.
