Product Overview

Gender-based violence affects every society in the world, and represents a significant impediment to development. Anyone can be a victim of violence on the grounds of their gender identity, but it is predominantly women and girls whose lives are limited by its effects. This volume explores and discusses the wide variety of forms that gender-based violence can take, including violence that occurs within marriage, during fuel collection and forced evictions, and at school, and the impact that this violence can have on the capacity of victims to support themselves and enjoy their full rights as human beings. The authors also present examples of successful policy and advocacy responses, ranging from lobbying for better legal and police protection for victims, to working with men and boys to combat the underlying gender stereotypes and expectations which legitimize gender-based violence against women. Case studies are drawn from across the world, from Central America to Southeast Asia.
