“By talking about violence against women, we hide the origin of violence”

For three years, Rose Lamy has been flushing out sexist formulas and speeches in the media and posting them on an Instagram account, “Prepare for the fight”. She now draws a book from it, published by Jean-Claude Lattès, in which she dissects examples gleaned from the press, radio or television.

More generally, Rose Lamy proposes to reverse the perspective by putting the spotlight on the perpetrators of aggression and not on women who are victims and passive. She thus suggests using the expression “macho or patriarchal violence” rather than “violence against women”. And to say “A man raped a woman” rather than “A woman was raped”.
