About this book

With examples from throughout Europe and the United States, the contributors to this volume explore how gender violence is framed through language and what this means for research and policy. Language shapes responses to abuse and approaches to perpetrators and interfaces with national debates about gender, violence, and social change.

Reviews

"With its specific focus on language and the challenge of communicating in a multi-lingual and multi-disciplinary field, this book contributes to an ongoing and very current international debate on the meaning of gender violence that is tangibly relevant on the ground and in policy-making, including legislation." - Nancy Gage-Lindner, Hesse Department of Social Welfare, Section Head Violence Prevention and Intervention, Youth Protective Services, Germany
