In post-secondary schools in North America, there are an alarming number of women who become victims of physical, sexual and psychological assaults. This book overviews the recent Canadian National Survey on Woman Abuse in Dating Relationships, and exposes a 'hidden campus curriculum' that maintains the kinds of inequalities that can engender acts of violence. Sexist messages, both subtle and implicit, not only foster an atmosphere of fear and insecurity but also serve as a powerful means of social control. Students should find the environment at any seat of learning to be safe and conducive to overall growth - where the 'hidden curriculum' is unacceptable. DeKeseredy and Schwartz hope that the research presented in this book will motivate students, faculty and officials to make the changes necessary to fulfil this promise.
