Institutional context of stalking and barriers to its resolution based on victims' experiences
Karmazínová, Hana ; Dvořáčková, Jana (advisor) ; Pavlík, Petr (referee)
EN The aim of this thesis is to explore the institutional context and barriers to individual and collective efforts to address the phenomenon of stalking (in Czech "dangerous prosecution") through Interpretative Phenomenological Analysis (IPA). Drawing on feminist perspective, this qualitative study explores the shared social context in which the unique experiences are set, the approach of the security forces and the reactions of those around the victims. The outcome of this work is the identification and overview of systematic gaps that allow the phenomenon of stalking (and possibly other forms of gender-based violence as well) to persist in our society in its current form and extent. These gaps are an obstacle to cases being reprorted and properly addressed within the existing legislative system.
Street Harassment of Non-Heterosexual Women
Fialová, Markéta ; Sokolová, Věra (advisor) ; Pavlík, Petr (referee)
This constructivist diploma thesis focuses on the problem called street harassment, specifically in the context of non-heterosexual women, and its analysis through the intersection of gender and sexuality in the heteronormative society. The theoretic part explains the basic terminology such as heteronormativity, homonegativity and misogyny which is used for presenting the context in which street harassment takes place. The core part of the text is dedicated to the forms of such behaviour, its psychological and social impacts on non-heterosexual women and their lives, their reactions and coping strategies. The empirical part focuses on analogical subtopics but in the concrete context of street harassment of non-heterosexual female couples. Its goal is to describe and accentuate this area which has been marginalized in the Czech as well as foreign academic debate. For these purposes was chosen the qualitative empirical design, specifically eight semi- structured in-depth interviews. The results were analysed by the thematic analysis method because it enables to find the common themes as well as the valuable distinctions in the interviews. Keywords Street Harassment; Public Space; Heteronormativity; Non-Heterosexuality; Homonegativity; Misogyny; Gender-Based Violence; Intersectionality
Analysis of the Depiction of Ukrainian Women in The First Months after the Russian Invasion of Ukraine
Vlčková, Tereza ; Pavlík, Petr (advisor) ; Gheorghiev, Olga (referee)
This diploma thesis regards the media construction of the portrayal of Ukrainian women in the context of the war in Ukraine. From the very beginning, the war was heavily covered by media, and gendered stereotypes began to manifest itself in the early days. In the theoretical part, therefore, the work deals with the construction of gender roles in war conflicts and sexualized violence, as well as the Russian invasion of Ukraine. The methodological part then presents research methods. These are quantitative content analysis, which aims to find out which topics are most often associated with Ukrainian women. The sources for quantitative analysis are articles from serious and tabloid online servers that contain selected keywords. From the sample are for critical discursive analysis selected articles with typical and also with deviating framing. The aim of the research is to map what framing of texts and setting of the agenda are the media using to portray the situation of Ukrainian women and what ideological structures this news framing has. Another research question is how the construction of masculinity and femininity in a war context is reflected in individual articles.
The Voices of Victimhood and Survivorship
Hoffman, Mitchell ; Jiroutová Kynčlová, Tereza (advisor) ; Pavlík, Petr (referee)
Sexual violence imprints noticeable marks on a victim (and later, survivor) throughout the person's life. Experiences of victimhood and survivorship prove challengingly intangible in a discursive landscape of denial, appropriation, invalidation, and dismissal. The Voices of Victimhood and Survivorship takes the firsthand testaments of selected victims and survivors of sexual violence and analyzes how these cases reflect the inequal dynamics of power over their own stories. Pertinent to this analysis are the disciplines of: rhetorical studies, media studies, English studies, criminology, law, victimology studies, psychology, and violence philosophy- all collaborating interdisciplinarity in the interest of a feminist hermeneutic. These disciplines synthesize the key concepts and theories to be discussed, including the meaning of voice, victimhood, survivorship, the contexts in which these discourses are produced, and how the medium and setting influence voice. Selected accounts-a judicial victim impact statement, a memoir, and an investigative documentary interview-serve as the primary texts upon which these theories comment. The thesis seeks to characterize the meaning and profile of language and power, and to cartograph the journeys of victims into survivors by means of using their voices for...
Catcalling through Women's Eyes: A Case Study
Kolářová, Karolína ; Pavlík, Petr (advisor) ; Dvořáčková, Jana (referee)
The aim of my master thesis Catcalling through women's eyes: a case study is to present the issue of catcalling from the perspective of women as frequent victims of this type of harassment. The thesis is divided into two parts, theoretical and empirical. In the theoretical part I will discuss what catcalling is, what it can look like and where we can encounter it. I will also look at the power aspects of this type of harassment and what effects it can have on women's mental health. In the empirical part I will then discuss my research. This is qualitative research where I have chosen semi-structured interviews as my method and my communication partners are women who have some experience with catcalling. Therefore, I use the interviews to find out how the women in question define catcalling, what their personal or mediated experience of it is, and what strategies or responses they choose when they have to cope with this type of behaviour. I am also interested in what the effects of catcalling on mental health may be and whether the women in question feel affected by their experience of catcalling in other areas of their lives. Key words: catcalling, sexual harrasment street harassment, women, gender, feminism
Sexual harassment in the video game community
Veverková, Veronika ; Pavlík, Petr (advisor) ; Dvořáčková, Jana (referee)
This thesis deals with gender-based harassment in the video game community. The aim is to explore what behaviors women encounter in this sphere, how they deal with this behavior, what its consequences are and what behaviors gamers consider to be problematic. The theoretical part focuses on defining the term sexual and gender-based harassment, the issues of cyberspace and harassing behavior in it. The following, empirical part, deals with the chosen research method and the chosen qualitative method, which was carried out using semi-structured interviews. The interview was given by eight women participants who move around the video game community as casual gamers, professional gamers, streamers or developers. It is a feminist research, whose intention was to give women a voice and try to understand this relatively closed toxic environment through their words and experiences. Eight interviews showed quite a lot of hate and toxicity from other players which is specific to women. Key words : Sexual harassment, gender-based harassment, cyberspace, video games, toxicity
