This book uses various theoretical perspectives to summarize what is known about the multiple causes of men's violence against women, and stresses the importance of identifying men's risk factors. The preliminary multivariate model identifies four content areas: macrosocietal; biological; gender role socialization; and relational factors to explain men's violence against women. Within these four content areas the editors develop thirteen preliminary hypotheses about the causes of men's violence against women, which are critiqued by the contributors in the subsequent chapters.

Globally, nationally and locally men's violence against women is an endemic social problem and an enduring human rights issue. Unlike men who are most likely to be victims of stranger assaults and violence, official data shows that women are most likely to be attacked, beaten, raped and killed by men known to them - either partners or family members. Research has maintained that to challenge and prevent men's violence against women, changing the attitudes and behaviour of young people is essential. This ground-breaking book presents the first investigation into what younger people think about men's violence against women. It does this by locating their constructions and understandings within the temporal and spatial location of childhood. Through challenging the perception that young people are too young to 'know' about violence or to offer opinions on it, Nancy Lombard demonstrates the ways to talk to younger people about men's violence. Through confronting preconceptions of younger people's existing knowledge, capabilities and understanding, she demonstrates that this is a subject which young people can confidently discuss.

EPUB and EPDF available Open Access under CC-BY-NC-ND licence. Some have argued that more men should play a role in ending violence against women – but what do we know about those men who are already doing so? Using case studies from Spain, Sweden and the UK, this book highlights those men who are already taking action. Examining the social, cultural, political and economic factors that support men to take a public stance, the authors explore what we can learn from their experiences in order to help build the movement to end violence against women. This important study will inform scholars and students of sociology and gender studies, as well as social movements and organisations working to involve and engage men and boys in achieving gender equality.

The authors address several forms of violence, including rape, intimate partner violence, stalking and sexual harassment ... Although most men do not perpetrate violence against women, such violence is not a 'women's' issue; it will take the strength and courage of both women and men to solve this human issue. [This book] explores the silent epidemic of men's violence against women, the grave consequences of this violence on both individuals and society, and the historical and current foundations that serve to both criminalize and tolerate men's violence against women ...

This collection of articles from development practitioners and feminist activists places violence against women, both direct and indirect, in the context of development. Violence is both a human rights issue and an obstacle to women's participation in development. Writers here focus on campaigning and advocacy work as well as work with women who have experienced violence, in countries including Russia, Guinea-Bissau, and India. The collection includes accounts of work with women who have been sexually assaulted and those who have undergone cultural practices such as female genital mutilation and early marriage.

Involving men to stop violence against women is a global trend, with celebrity-endorsed campaigns such as HeforShe and White Ribbon being hailed as progress in changing male behaviour. But the question remains: Has men's involvement resulted in positive change, or has it reinforced the belief that women need to be rescued by men? Involving Men in Ending Violence against Womenprovides a feminist analysis of men's motivations for joining violence against women's movement. Through extensive fieldwork in Afghanistan, Pakistan and East Timor, this innovative title explores the roles men play in violence against women programs. Indeed, while there are growing voices that question male advocacy and activism in the violence against women campaign, this is the first monograph which provides empirical and critical analysis of how men's feminist involvement is translated into benevolent patriarchy. Seeking to subvert mainstream narratives which accept male activism without questions, this controversial yet enlightening title will appeal to undergraduate and postgraduate students, including postdoctoral researchers, interested in fields such as Gender and Sexualities, Political Science, Feminist Studies and Southeast Asian Studies. pt male activism without questions, this controversial yet enlightening title will appeal to undergraduate and postgraduate students, including postdoctoral researchers, interested in fields such as Gender and Sexualities, Political Science, Feminist Studies and Southeast Asian Studies.

Nevertheless, the research literature indicates that there are generalities that can be made about men who perpetrate physical and sexual violence against intimate partners and those who commit sexual assaults on other women.
