‘As most of the victims, Manuela was rendered invisible’. With these words, judge Ricardo Pérez Manrique concludes his concurring opinion on the case Manuela et al. versus El Salvador discussed before the Inter-American Court of Human Rights and ended with the judgement of 2nd November 2021. By providing a platform for interdisciplinary and international dialogue, this volume aims to explore the various dimensions of gendered violence and the state’s role, thus illuminating the many invisibles as Manuela.
The notion of gender refers to a combination of characteristics fluctuating across time and cultures, and revolving around identity and the image of one’s own self: it is ‘a complexity whose totality is permanently deferred’ (Butler, 1990) and ‘varies from society to society’ (WHO). Gendered violence could be experienced by anyone and is rooted in discrimination, inequality, and in the idea of heteronormativity (Warner, 1991) as the “natural” status quo. By uncovering gendered violence and the ambiguous societal and statal approach that made it to be considered a tolerable component of life until recent times, this volume examines how and if violence, in its different forms and through its several means, is an expression of power and control over bodies and minds and affects health. In this context, the State has a critical role in combating, eradicating, preventing but also in perpetuating violence. This volume encourages an evaluation, and reevaluation, of state obligations in protecting rights, preserving values, achieving social justice through a gendered perspective, and aims to feature insights from diverse geographical areas, also providing a comparative analysis of the state’s role in different cultural and political contexts.

Gendered violence and legal frameworks
