Abstract

In this work, we present the analysis of life stories of a group of men who are serving sentences for gender violence in Jaén II Penitentiary Institution (Andalusia, Spain), who are part of the treatment for gender aggressors. Results show some characteristics of these men, related to gender violence, are a reflection of the patriarchal system, with a traditional cultural component, such as the concept of culture of honor; the existence of gender stereotypes; jealousy or infidelity as the main justification for the crime committed; all variables directly related to gender violence. These findings represent a contribution to the fight against this serious social problema, taking into consideration the perspective of the abusive man, being a main actor.
