(en) France, Alternative Libertaire AL Novembre - Education: Feminist pedagogy against violence (fr, it, pt) [machine translation], ,

Date Sun, 20 Nov 2016 10:30:09 +0200

Feminist pedagogy has developed practices to help female students to deal with violence at school and outside school. ---- The school was characterized by the philosopher Michel Foucault as a disciplinary institution. This leads to consider the school as a place where abusive relationships are exacerbated: microviolence between teachers, students and teachers, peer violence. Girls, more than boys, suffer violence between peers at school. But these gendered school violence are only one aspect of a broader continuum of gender-based violence in society ranging from sexist remark to physical and sexual violence, which can lead to death of the victims. ---- Feminist pedagogy has been especially developed in North America, but also in Spain, for example. It would also more accurately speak of feminist pedagogy because it brings together different currents.

They propose to act on various levels against the sexual violence. This may involve in particular through awareness work. This is done by a sociological analysis of these acts: knowledge of sexual violence, marital, the cyber sex or violence in the classroom.

A second aspect may relate to work that aims to deconstruct gender stereotypes in society and the hidden curriculum of gender in school. This example of deconstructing forms of hegemonic masculinity that can promote violence against women, homosexual or transgender people.

Empowerment of girls

A third dimension of this work may be to influence the classroom climate so as to make it more inclusive, caring and "safe". Based on care, the teachers implement a framework in which the remarks and sexist behavior will not be tolerated. They implement practices that promote the speaking of girls as the existence of a dual listing in the speech turns. They aim to prevent the creation of a macho language in the classroom, such as the fact that boys interrupt girls when they speak.

A fourth dimension is to promote the empowerment of girls for their practice usually usurped by the boys activities like football in the playground or, for example, by training them to speak in a predominantly male group.

Some approaches of feminist pedagogy for example, have drawn criticism. For example, the fact of asking teachers, mostly women, to have a caring attitude, based on care, could be considered to contribute to lock them in a gender stereotype of the female teacher.
