Violence Against Women (Behind the News) (Paperback)
This important title examines exploitation and acts of violence against women and girls, from trafficking and murder to sexual and domestic abuse. Readers will study the reasons why women and girls are made the victims of violence on a global scale, and consider the ways that such violence can be combatted. Taken beyond coverage by the media, readers will see and understand the real lives affected by this violence - dispelling the idea that it only happens in certain areas or circumstances. Debate sidebars and critical thinking questions encourage understanding of different perspectives and encourage readers to examine violence against women in their own communities, nations, and the world.
