It is said in Spain that “micromachismos” (soft violence) are an important cause for gender violence to be perpetuated because it is silent.
Such a concept is quite unusual on international scientific research databases.
There doesn’t exist consensus on which behaviors are micromachismos. Therefore, certain forms of violence against women can be excused as microviolence, reducing its significance and importance. It is not comparable to look down on your girlfriend with not cooking.
