301: Guilty of Being Female: In Memory of Maria Trinidad Matus | Rima Danielle Jomaa | Mental Clarity

Following a tragic rape & murder of a beautiful, young woman, Maria Trinidad Matus, in the small beach town where Rima lives, the epidemic of femicide and violence against women (VAW) is explored. Violence against women comprises a wide range of acts – from verbal harassment, which basically all women endure regularly, to other forms of emotional abuse, to daily physical or sexual abuse. On the other end of the spectrum is femicide: the murder of a woman. What are the mental health effects of violence against women & femicide on an individual & on a community level? What is the impact in general on the community? What are the theories that explore causes of femicide and ways to prevent or decrease femicide? Why does the media misreport rape and crimes against women & what role does patriarchy have to play in all of this? Rima discusses worldwide statistics of femicide, her own theories of the systemic, societal collapse that’s imminent & why we are seeing such horrific displays of violence & hatred, and how we can come together as humans to address & eradicate women as perpetual victims of abuse, rape & murder. In memory of Maria Trinidad Matus #niunamenos
