Women and Violence - Women's Studies Journal 19:2 2005
Author(s): ed Ang Jury and Mandy Morgan
This issue addresses a theme that never goes away: Women and Violence. A wide range of topics relating to this sensitive subject are covered in a discussion of the destructive impact of violence on women's lives.
Topics include doctors' experiences with abused women; women's experiences with lawyers and the Domestic Violence Act (1995); the law governing women's evidence in rape trials; the relationship between sex-work and violence; the spread of HIV and violence; and the relationship between traditional sociological theory and women's accounts of their experiences of abuse.
There are also two commentaries on the subject - one from the Hon Ruth Dyson, Minister for Women's Affairs, who speaks of the Labour Government?s commitment to eradicate violence in New Zealand, and the other from Professor Jane Ritchie of Waikato University, who discusses women's violence towards children.
