What does the concept of symbolic violence allow us to understand about the construction, performance & consequences of hegemonic gender roles?
Pierre Bourdieu's concept of "Symbolic violence" refers to an imposition of categories of thought and perception upon dominated social agents who then take the social order to be just.
