Sammanfattning

Reports of women’s violence against men and claims of gender symmetry in domestic violence challenge feminist analyses. Moreover, they raise interesting questions for feminist researchers. The aim of this paper is to describe the academic discussion on gender symmetry, with an emphasis on feminist researchers’ responses to the questions raised by reports of women’s violence against men in intimate relationships. The paper serves as an introduction to an academic debate that has been lively in the United States and, to some extent, in Great Britain, but hitherto not in the Nordic countries, where research on women’s violence against men in intimate relationships is a fairly new development in the domestic violence field. The paper maps out the different methodological approaches underpinning the gender symmetry debate and summarizes the critique of the kind of research that has found gender symmetry in domestic violence. By doing so the author hopes to prevent some apparent methodological mistakes from being repeated, but also argue that the discussion on women’s use of violence may encourage feminist researchers to develop even more nuanced and multifaceted analyses of gender and violence.
