Dealing with Domestic Violence: A Comparative Analysis of Women Police Stations in Brazil and India

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Some developing and traditional societies are introducing women police stations, exclusively staffed by women officers, to deal with crimes against women. Studies of these stations in Tamil Nadu, India, reveal that they have been successful in helping women victims of domestic violence and have had the additional benefit of providing a meaningful role for women officers. The present study examined whether this is the case for Brazil, where currently more than 400 women stations have been established to deal with women victims of violence. Direct observation of the functioning of these police stations in Brazil, and interviews with women police officers deployed in the stations, allowed a comparative analysis of (1) the Brazilian and Indian models of women policing in dealing with women victims of violence and (2) the cultural and organizational context under which women police stations operate in India and in Brazil. In conclusion, the questions is discussed of whether other countries with similar cultural backgrounds to India and Brazil might also benefit from establishing women police stations to deal with domestic violence.
