Gendered dimensions of school violence (Doctoral thesis)

Μπούνα, Ανδρομάχη

School violence is a complex social phenomenon, which differs in terms of its manifestation among pupils according to their different characteristics, such as gender. According to the results of many surveys, boys are more often involved in violence than girls. This differentiation, according to the theories of P. Bourdieu and J. Butler, is linked to the formation of gender identity and the reproduction of gender discrimination. This paper examines how the manifestation of violence by pupils contributes to shaping their gender identity. A sample of the survey consisted of 386 students. The questionnaire and the semi-structured interview were used as data collection tools. According to the results of the survey, boys in relation to girls manifest a greater degree of physical violence and, to a lesser extent, the spread of malicious rumors. Students interpret the extent and the type of violence they manifest in biological / natural terms. Boys say they are "nature" and that a girl is not "right" to practice physical violence. Exercise of violence both in terms of extent and in the forms in which it manifests contributes to the formation of gender identity and the reproduction of gender discrimination.
