Mens’ violence towards women during pregnancy - A literature review about the effect of violence on womens’ life situation (English)
Abstract [sv]

Denna litteraturstudie undersöker hur gravida kvinnors livssituation påverkas av mäns våld. Datamaterialet består av tolv vetenskapliga artiklar med syftet att framföra kvinnornas egna berättelser. Artiklarna har analyserats och tematiserats och slutligen blivit fyra teman och tio subteman vilket representerar litteraturstudiens resultat. Resultatet diskuteras i relation med teorier om könsmakt, radikalfeminism och ojämlikhetens fyra nivåer för att få förståelse för kvinnans livssituation i ett större sammanhang. Diskussionen belyser hur socialarbetare kan inspireras att arbeta med kvinnor utsatta för våld under graviditet ur ett empowermentorienterat perspektiv. Litteraturstudien visar att det är viktigt att socialarbetare har en helhetsbild och förståelse för hur kvinnornas hemsituation, ambivalens, självbilder och svårigheterna med att lämna bildar en komplex livssituation där kvinnorna och deras barn behöver stöd och hjälp för att kunna agera efter sina egna behov och öka sin makt.

Abstract [en]

This literature review investigates how pregnant womens’ life situations are affected by mens’ violence. The data material consists of twelve articles which aims to present the womens’ own stories. The articles/studies have been analysed and categorised into four themes and subthemes, which represents the result of the literature review. The result has been discussed with the theory of gender power, radical feminism and the four levels of inequality for a greater understanding of the womens’ life situations. The discussion illustrates how social workers can be inspired to work with women, who are exposed to violence during pregnancy, with a perspective of empowerment. The literature review shows the importance for social workers to have an overall picture and understanding about how the womens’ home situation, ambivalence, self images and the difficultness with leaving creates a complex life situation where the women and their children are in need of support and help to be able to act on their own needs and increase their power.
