Abstract [en]

Violence against women is a social problem that affects all groups of women in society. Although violence is a general problem in this sense, some groups of women are more vulnerable to violence and find themselves in a more difficult situation when subjected to it. Vulnerability can both be an issue of an increased risk for violence or specific forms of violence, and a lack of knowledge and inadequate responses to some women and their needs from practitioners. In policy debates and in the literature “special” forms of vulnerability are often discussed as issues of addiction, disability, ethnic minority or immigrant status, mental health problems, prostitution and trafficking, violence in same-sex relationships, or old age. This article argues that we also need to recognize the vulnerability of abused women who are also mothers, and critically explore how expectations on mothers and (good enough) motherhood may contribute to a special form of vulnerability.
