Interroger les femmes et les hommes sur les violences subies en France et aux États-Unis : entre mesures statistiques et interprétations sociologiques

Abstract : In the mid-1990s in North America, a 20-year-old debate was reopened between Murray A. Straus and Michael P. Johnson on the issue of « gender symmetry » in the area of physical violence between intimate partners. Do women use physical violence as much as men ? Is there « gender symmetry » in the recourse to physical violence ? Since then, several statistical surveys have also been conducted in Europe that increasingly question women and men about the violent acts they report being subjected to. This article confronts the American sources with some recent French statistical surveys to compare results, their interpretation and the methods used to produce them. It concludes that there is a distinct asymmetry in the use of violence between men and women in intimate partnerships.
