Survival in an “all boys club”: Policewomen in Serbia

Women's Studies International Forum
Volume 48, January–February 2015, Pages 57–70

Synopsis: The paper is based on the results of the first qualitative research focusing on the position of policewomen in Serbia. The research was conducted from June to August 2011 on a sample of 30 policewomen of various standings as working police officers; it took into account the types of roles held, the police schools they finished, their professional experience and the size of the police organizations with which they were employed. The core questions in the analysis related to policewomen's experiences while completing their education, during the hiring process and while carrying out their police duties, as well as regarding possibilities for promotion. Although considerable improvement was noted regarding the status of women in the process of police education, most participants in the research had negative experience in the course of finding a job; they also experienced limitations with regard to their promotion as well as various sorts of harassment at work.

Homofobično društvo, instiucije i pojedinci diskriminišu i vrše razne oblike nasilja nad LGBT osobama, što ih svrstava u najugroženije društvene grupe. Ali dok odrasle LGBT osobe imaju izgrađene određene sisteme samoodbrane, dotle su LGBT deca mnogo bespomoćnija u suočavanju sa nasiljem i odbacivanjem u svojim porodicama, al i i drugim društvenim ambijentima u kojima se kreću, obrazovnim, sportskim i religiozim institucijama. Roditeljska porodica može da bude prava odbrana i zaštita od homofobičnog društva ako razvije solidarnost prema svojim LGBT najmlađim članovima umesto da bude produžena ruka homofobičnog nasilja.

Ključne reči: Homofobija, porodično nasilje, prinudno lečenje, diskriminacija, odbacivanje LGBT dece i mladih, solidarnost, zaštita.
