When women decide what to wear, where to go, how to get there, what time of day to be outdoors, and what affects their sense of security and safety, are they aware that they're afraid of being sexually assaulted? Violence against women is, on a global scale, so common that some experts consider it a "normal" aspect of women's experiences--and yet research on the issue is subjective and inconsistent. Women and Violence is a comprehensive look at the issue of violence against women and its many appearances, causes, costs and consequences. Understanding that personal values, beliefs and environment affect an individual's response to--and acknowledgement of--violence against women, this book addresses topics such as global perspectives on violence, controversies and debates, and social change strategies and activism.
