Review:

"Preventing Sexual Violence brings a wide lens to the complex challenge of sexual violence prevention, offering thoughtful discussion of a range of issues and approaches to primary prevention. Critical challenges to conventional models are posed, with one author for instance resurrecting a feminist analysis of patriarchy as essential to understanding the problem. Readers will appreciate novel angles, such as the role of criminal law in relation to primary prevention, the consideration of newer forms of sexual violence, and the need to extend our vision towards a 'digital sexual ethics'." - Nicola Gavey, University of Auckland, New Zealand

Book Description Palgrave Macmillan. Hardcover. Book Condition: New. Hardcover. 224 pages. Dimensions: 0.0in. x 0.0in. x 0.0in.Globally, rates of sexual violence remain unacceptably high, with disproportionate effects on women and girls. While most scholars and practitioners uniformly concur about the scope of the problem, there is currently little agreement about how to prevent sexual violence before it occurs. Drawing on diverse disciplines such as criminology, education, health promotion, law, psychology, social work, socio-legal studies, sociology and womens studies, this book provides the first interdisciplinary collection on the primary prevention of sexual violence. The volume addresses the key causes or determinants of sexual violence, including cultural attitudes, values, beliefs and norms, as well as systemic gender-based inequalities that create the conditions underlying much violence against women. Including contributions from internationally renowned experts in the field, the volume critically investigates the theoretical underpinnings of prevention work, describing and analysing the limits and possibilities of primary prevention strategies on the ground. The chapters collectively examine the role that structural violence and gender inequality play in fostering a culture of sexual violence, and reflect on the relationship between macro and micro levels for understanding both sexual violence perpetration and prevention. This book will be a key resource for scholars, practitioners and policymakers involved in the fields of sexual violence prevention, education, law, family violence, and child sexual abuse. Including contributions from Victoria L. Banyard (University of New Hampshire, USA), Alison Cares (Assumption College, USA), Moira Carmody (University of Western Sydney, Australia), Gillian Fletcher (La Trobe Univeristy, Australia), Wendy Larcombe (University of Melbourne, Australia), Claire Maxwell (University of London, UK), Mary M. Moynihan (University of New Hampshire, USA), Bob Pease (Deakin University, Australia) and Antonia Quadara (Australian Institute of Family Studies, Australia). This item ships from multiple locations.
