De la potestad marital a la violencia económica y patrimonial en Colombia
description
In Colombia’s first legal code, the Spanish colonial legacy of gender inequality in marriage was summed up in the concept of “marital power” – the husband’s legal authority over his wife and her property.  It took nearly a century to legally dismantle its components, to the point that a husband’s control over the income and assets of his wife now constitutes economic and patrimonial violence. While economic and patrimonial violence has been recognized as a form of violence against women since 2008, survey data indicate a high incidence of this form of intimate partner violence, particularly against separated and divorced women, and among those in consensual unions as compared to marriages.  This shows how difficult it is to change culturally patriarchal control, and why this form of violence has received little institutional attention.

Demorou quase um século para desmontá-lo legalmente, o que foi conseguido reconhecendo esse controle como violência econômica e patrimonial. Desde 2008, esse tipo de violência é reconhecido como uma forma de violência contra a mulher; no entanto, os dados indicam uma alta incidência de violência econômica e patrimonial por parte do companheiro ou ex-companheiro, especialmente entre mulheres separadas e divorciadas, e entre aquelas em união estável. Evidencia-se a prevalência cultural da lógica patriarcal e, também se explica por que essa forma de violência tem recebido pouca atenção institucional.La herencia colonial hispana sobre la desigualdad de género en el matrimonio quedó resumida en el primer código civil colombiano dentro del concepto de potestad marital, en términos de los derechos del marido sobre la persona y bienes de la mujer.
