This international anthology highlights the problems of violence against women through the experiences and analyses of individual women and groups from over 30 countries, as diverse as Papua New Guinea, Argentina, Tanzania, France, India, the USA, Scotland, Czechoslovakia and Tibet. Broadly divided by theme, the book explores domestic violence and child sexual abuse, sexual harassment in the workplace, women and torture, genital mutilation and the effects of male violence on women's reproductive health. It also looks at efforts initiated by women to find solutions, examining schemes such as the introduction of women's police stations in Brazil and Pakistan, strategies to change the law in the USA and Bangladesh, and the value of popular education projects in Canada, Jamaica and Australia.
