In the first edition of the Summer Course, the conceptual and application framework of the gender perspective in the judicial field was addressed. The concatenation of controversial judicial decisions, which have deepened the material inequality of women and weakened formal equality, has been described as a sign of patriarchal justice. At a time of great and necessary feminist mobilization, discussions have been fostered about what the judiciary should do: wether it should be limited to applying the law without regard to the cultural, political, economic and social context, originally unequal or, on the contrary, actively participate in the removal of the causes of material inequality. In this sense, the implementation of the gender perspective when dealing with issues in which women are affected by the fact of being so has been proposed as a possible solution to the patriarchal teaching of justice.

However, it is still necessary to systematize this process, consolidate it methodologicalally and explain the need for it. Only a gender-based judiciary will be able to detect and resolve issues that involve discrimination, as a woman or as a woman in connection with other causes of discrimination, making legal actors allies in the fight for real equality of women and Men.

In this second edition of the course, our objective is to analyse the situation of unprotection against violence suffered by women and underage creatures in the family. This protection stems both from the existing rules themselves and from the application and interpretation of those rules by the courts. The family has been built as a space for intimacy and, therefore, on many occasions, of unprotection and impunity for expressions of violence against women and minors. The eradication of these structural violence is also the responsibility of legal institutions and operators, and in particular the judicial authority.
