Violence Against Women in the US

Theory, Research and Policy

«

"In a time in which gender-based violence studies, activism and policy have become increasingly specialized, Coy’s book eloquently returns us to the core feminist principle that heterosexual-patriarchy is the foundation on which of all forms of violence against women—rape, domestic abuse, stalking, sex trafficking, and pornography—are predicated. Coy’s re-conceptualization and re-centering of the feminist frame provides a clear pathway for preventing all forms of violence against women through institutional, rather than individual transformations."

- Angela Hattery, Women & Gender Studies/Center for the Study & Prevention of Gender-Based Violence, University of Delaware

"This book offers a much needed analysis of U.S. efforts to end violence against women. As a British scientist working in the U.S., Coy brings an inspiring insider/outsider perspective to the issues and with unusual depth and perspective illuminates areas where progress has been made and where much more needs to be done. By merging a feminist perspective with an understanding of violence against women as a human rights violation, she develops clear-sighted recommendations for future work. This is a superb engagement with the topic that leaves the reader better informed and better equipped to participate in social change."

- Renate Klein, Part-Time Faculty, Instructor, University of Maine

"This book features the most comprehensive coverage of the extant social scientific literature on violence against women in the United States that I have ever read. It is destined to be one of the most valuable resources in the field, and it moves well beyond most other examinations of the topic."

- Walter S. DeKeseredy, Anna Deane Carlson Endowed Chair of Social Sciences, Director of the Research Center on Violence, and Professor of Sociology, West Virginia University
