Invisibility of Romani women in Spanish laws against gender-based violence: reasons and consequences


This paper examines Romani women’s (in)visibility within the Spanish legal system in relation to the laws that fight against gender-based violence. It offers a methodological analysis of both international and national laws that are implemented and ratified in Spain in order to demonstrate that the invisibility in the legal system is a consequence of the institutional racism that exists in Spain. Consequently, the paper urges the implementation of an intersectional approach in the creation of laws as well as the involvement of Romani feminism and Romanies experts in the development of those laws.
