Violence and Gender in the Globalized World expands the present discourse on gender and violence, discovering new ways to address the complexities encountered in academic research on the topic. Through the introduction of a variety of uncommonly discussed geopolitical sites and dynamics, the book redefines the critical picture of gender violence in the age of globalization, adopting diverse methodological approaches and various disciplinary praxes in its investigation of the question of violence against women across the globe. With an international team of contributors comprising both scholars and activists, this volume bridges the gap between academic and activist perspectives on gender violence. As such, it will be of interest to anyone conducting research in the areas of gender and sexuality, human rights, cultural studies, political science, history, postcolonialism and colonialism, sociology, anthropology, philosophy and religion.
