Women, Male Violence and the Law

Women, Male Violence and the Law

Edited by Julie Stubbs


Is there currently effective State response to domestic violence? Has the feminist struggle of the last decade made the law more responsive to women's needs and interests? Can this struggle succeed? And for which women? In what situations? What are the possibilities and limits of the law in the context of domestic violence?

These issues are addressed by expert lawyers, social scientists, educators and policy makers.
