Violence against women is a key concern for society and feminism. Organizing for social, political and legal change in relation to violence is a pressing issue, and through the critical appraisal of approaches adopted by the anti-violence movement in a variety of countries, this book informs future strategy and approaches when organizing against violence. Lesley McMillan provides the first detailed comparative account of women's anti-violence movement in Western countries, ideally suited for upper-level students interested in this fascinating topic.
LESLEY MCMILLAN is Lecturer in Sociology, University of Sussex.
