Unravelling the Thread of Violence
The problem of violence against women manifests itself in a terrifying array of forms throughout the world. The experience of violent intrusion - or the threat of such intrusion - is a common thread in the fabric of women's everyday lives in societies around the world.
As an international journal, one of the goals of Violence Against Women is to unravel that thread by shedding light not only on forms of violence that are already widely discussed but also on lesser known forms of violence, such as dowry murders, female circumcision enslavement for sex tourism, and rape as a weapon of war. Topics recently covered in the journal have included: Sexual Assault/ Coercion Domestic Violence Hate Crimes Corporate Violence Wife Rape Pornography Acquaintance Rape Lesbian Battery Female Sexual Abuse Sexual Harassment
Unity of Purpose
Efforts to deal with the crisis of violence against women, in its many forms, have been fragmented by the boundaries of academic disciplines, professional allegiances, and increasingly, credentialism. Academics and clinicians are speaking to those most like themselves in relatively closed groups, not hearing the numerous voices that need to be heard if we are to develop a full understanding of the problem and a comprehensive strategy for addressing it. A primary goal of this journal, therefore, is to foster dialogue among those working in various fields and disciplines, as well as in agencies and other settings, and among those from diverse backgrounds in terms of ethnocultural and racial identity, sexual orientation, and experiences of victimisation/ survivorship.
To achieve that goal, contributions are featured from a variety of diverse perspectives, such as: Ethnic Studies Criminology Public Health Political Science Law Psychology Advocacy Public Policy Social Work Gender Studies Media Studies Medicine Sociology
