Violence Against Women : Vulnerable Populations, Hardback Book

Violence Against Women : Vulnerable Populations Hardback

Part of the Sociology Re-Wired series

Description

Violence Against Women: Vulnerable Populations investigates under-researched and underserved groups of women who are particularly vulnerable to violent victimization from an intimate male partner.

In the past, there has been an understandable reluctance to address this issue to avoid stereotyping vulnerable groups of women.

However, developments in the field, particularly intersectionality theory, which recognizes women's diversity in experiences of violence, suggest that the time has come to make the study of violence in vulnerable populations a new sub-field in the area.

As the first book of its kind, Violence Against Women: Vulnerable Populations identifies where violence on vulnerable populations fits within the field, develops a method for studying vulnerable populations, and brings vital new knowledge to the field through the analysis of original data (from three large-scale representative surveys) on eight populations of women who are particularly vulnerable to violence.
