Involving Men in Ending Violence against Women : Development, Gender and VAW in Times of Conflict Paperback / softback
Part of the Routledge Advances in Feminist Studies and Intersectionality series
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 Women provides 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.
