Gendering Everyday Violence and Seguridad across Spaces

(p.91) Chapter 3 Gendering Everyday Violence and Seguridad across Spaces
Peruvian Lives across Borders

University of Illinois Press

In this chapter is not the political violence and economic insecurity in the 1980s and 1990s in Peru that motivated many to leave that receives sustained attention but the more mundane forms of verbal violence, street sexual harassment, and everyday anxieties that shape interactions with partners and children among return migrants that is central. The chapter explores relationships within the family as well as migrants’ behaviors and experiences in public spaces as these are informed by concerns about violence and security. We read about the ways in which safety is gendered, and a major concern for return migrants.

Keywords:   Safety, Danger, Fear, Gender, street sexual harassment, return migration, violence, family relationships, public spaces
