PROO MENDEZ, Eleane  and  BARCENAS BARAJAS, Karina. Spirituality as a Strategy for Victims’ Mothers to Resignify Feminicidal Violence. Rev. interdiscip. estud. género Col. Méx. [online]. 2021, vol.7, e678.  Epub June 25, 2021. ISSN 2395-9185.

The feminist movement in Mexico has fought to stamp out feminicidal violence, defined as a systematic expression of hatred that threatens the lives of women and girls. Based on a qualitative methodology focused on the subjective experience of five mothers of victims, this article problematizes spirituality as a means of subjectivizing and individualize beliefs. This strategy is also a political tool that supports access to justice, improves mental wellbeing, and mediates between subjectivity and Mexico’s structural problem of impunity and injustice.

Keywords : gender violence; feminist movement; spirituality; personal religious beliefs.
