Giramata I

PhD Student, Gender and Women’s Studies

Giramata’s research interests are gender-based violence and intimate partner violence, particularly in Black communities. She theorizes in a Black Feminist lens with womanist works and aims to understand the different factors that normalize violence against Black women. Her work looks into how these factors also hinder and discourage Black women from reporting violence perpetuated to them by other Black community members. She also aims to look at a cross cultural analysis of Black women’s experiences diasporically; what is the global narrative that normalizes the violence against Black womyn?
