Patriarchal violence – an attack on human security - A broad survey of measures to combat patriarchal violence and oppression, particularly acts committed in the name of honour directed at women, homosexuals, bisexuals and transgender persons.
Patriarchal violence is defined in this study as by the UN Special Rapporteur on Violence against Women, namely as a collective term for the violence that is found throughout the world and
that is rooted in the patriarchal power structures it defends. The study shows that while men are usually exposed to violence outside the family, women and girls are primarily the victims of violence in the home and within the family.
