Chapter

Abstract


  • Men’s violence against women and girls is a blunt expression of the pervasive

    gender inequalities that characterize countries across the globe. Men’s

    violence against women both expresses and maintains men’s power over

    women. Indeed, rape, domestic violence and other forms of violence have

    been seen as paradigmatic expressions of the operation of male power

    over women (Miller and Biele 1993, p. 53). Whether in workplaces or elsewhere,

    efforts to build gender equality must reckon with men’s violence

    against women.
