Explanation of the Post

In many situations, scientific evidence has shown that women victims of gender-based violence have become survivors and have been able to overcome the situation thanks to the support given by both women and men (Joanpere-Foraster & Morà, 2019). Scientific research has evidenced the negative impacts many men have suffered because of positioning themselves with the victim and against the aggressor (Flecha, 2021; Nazareno et al., 2022). In fact, supporters of gender-based violence victims have suffered negative consequences (isolating gender violence) violence by both male and female colleagues (Flecha, R). New alternative masculinities are linked with the overcoming of gender-based violence (Flecha et al., 2013; Portell & Pulido, 2012).
