Abstract:

This project explores the effects of community organizing on violence against lesbian, bisexual, transgender, intersex and queer (LBTIQ) women. It focuses on a new group of LBTIQ women in New Mexico engaged in community organizing with two primary goals: 1. increasing safety for lesbian, bisexual, transgender, intersex and queer women and 2. creating alternatives to incarceration for queer women who perpetrate violence. Same-sex domestic violence poses a challenge to theories that characterize domestic violence as a manifestation of menís dominance over women. Further, LBTIQ womenís experiences of violence challenge frameworks that assign dichotomous, gendered roles of "victim" and "perpetrator" to participants in violent situations. The marginalization of LBTIQ women stemming from homophobia means they often lack the social support of family, acquaintances, law enforcement, the legal system, health care institutions and other service providers. In this context, community organizing has emerged as a mechanism for LBTIQ women themselves to address the problem of same-sex domestic violence. Based on the hypotheses that violence against LBTIQ women involves distinct organizational challenges and that community organizing offers innovative possibilities for addressing this violence, the study examines the ways a new community-based approach differs from the traditional intervention approaches employed by existing anti-domestic violence organizations. This project contributes to scholarship on gender and sexuality, domestic violence, and social movements.
