Overview

Making public the issue of sexual violence - men's violence to women and children - has been a major feminist success story of the past couple of decades. This book gives an important insight into the new issues and questions that have become central to our understanding of sexual violence and abuse, and the new directions in which research in this area has developed. It is a collection of the many exciting ideas, discussions and developments arising from the work of the researchers and activists who are part of the British Sociological Association Violence Against Women Study Group. It reflects a shared commitment to research that centres on the material reality of women's lives and assists the generation of strategies for change. The authors explore differences in women's experiences and how these relate to different ways of coping with men's violence. Women, Violence and Male Power is of direct relevance to practitioners working with survivors of abuse, as well as students and researchers in the fields of: women's studies, criminology, sociology, social policy and social work.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
A dozen papers emerging from research and discussions during the late 1980s and early 1990s by the Violence Against Women Study Group of the British Sociological Association. They cover theoretical and methodological issues of investigating male violence against women; the relevant law, protection, and criminal justice; and providing feminist support services in a period of popularist anti-feminism and economic recession. Some of the papers have been published in journals or other collections. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
