Gendered violence is minimized and misunderstood as "personal".

In families, communities, institutions and movements, both conservative and progressive, gender oppression and gendered violence tend to be minimized, or relegated as personal instead of political.  Gendered violence is de-prioritized, under-analyzed and rendered irrelevant to issues considered to be larger.  Gendered violence reflects and bolsters systemic aggression and oppression, and inflicts damage of devastating scope and depth in our world.
