Various definitions of violence exist, ranging from those that only consider physical assaults to those that also take into account sexual assault, psychological abuse, and economic exploitation. Both genders are discursively represented in their heterogeneity. (The feminine is frequently portrayed as a commodity, while the masculine is frequently portrayed as weak and pathological.) What is more important, though, is the understanding that there are specific types of gender violence that target women and utilize sexist language and images to harm and oppress them. This incident is categorized in the study as semiotic violence. Women are not the only ones who may experience this type of assault; anybody can. Even though it is the most pervasive, covert, and despised kind of violence committed against a person, it is generally ignored. The main goal of this study on semiotic violence is to improve understanding of this kind of violence.
