About this book

While there is much agreement about the scope of sexual violence, how to go about preventing it before it occurs is the subject of much debate. This unique interdisciplinary collection investigates the philosophy and practice of primary prevention of sexual violence within education institutions and the broader community.

Reviews

"Preventing Sexual Violence brings a wide lens to the complex challenge of sexual violence prevention, offering thoughtful discussion of a range of issues and approaches to primary prevention. Critical challenges to conventional models are posed, with one author for instance resurrecting a feminist analysis of patriarchy as essential to understanding the problem. Readers will appreciate novel angles, such as the role of criminal law in relation to primary prevention, the consideration of newer forms of sexual violence, and the need to extend our vision towards a 'digital sexual ethics'." - Nicola Gavey, University of Auckland, New Zealand
