Abstract [sv]

När covid-19-pandemin nådde Sverige mobiliserade kvinnojourerna snabbt eftersom de visste vad en nedstängning av samhället skulle kunna betyda för kvinnor och barn som lever under hot och med våld i sina hem. På kort tid kom myndigheternas rekommendationer om att arbeta hemma, upprätthålla social distans och undvika resor att minska möjligheterna till rörlighet. Detta gjorde det särskilt svårt för kvinnor som levde under hot och kontroll att komma i kontakt med myndigheter och kvinnojourer. Syftet med denna artikel är att förstå hur relationen mellan samhället och kvinnor som är utsatta för hot och våld i hemmet under pandemitider ser ut. Analysen utgår från en teoretisk modell för ”det immunitära livet”, för att förstå förhållandet mellan individ och samhälle. Studien består av telefonintervjuer som genomfördes våren 2020 med personal vid fem olika kvinnojourer. Ett viktigt resultat i studien är att misshandlade kvinnor under pandemin riskerar att berövas möjligheterna att skapa viktiga relationer med samhället, något som exempelvis kvinnojourer annars möjliggör.

Abstract [en]

When the Covid-19 pandemic reached Sweden, women’s shelters mobilized quickly because they knew what a lockdown of public life could mean for women and children who are living with threats and violence in their homes. In a short time, recommendations by the authorities to work at home, maintain social distancing, and avoid travelling resulted in decreased possibilities for mobility. This made it particularly difficult for abused and controlled women to make contacts with the authorities and women’s shelters. The purpose of this article is to understand how the relationship between abused women and the community can be understood in times of pandemic . This is done by applying a theoretical model of ”the immunitary life”, to understand the relation between the individual and the community. The study consists of telephone interviews conducted in the spring of 2020 with staff at five different women’s shelters. A central result in the study is that abused women, during the pandemic, are at risk of being deprived of opportunities to create the relationships with the community that women’s shelters otherwise enables.
