About this book


This timely text examines the experiences of women working with the effects of male violence in a range of key areas: with rape survivors, with battered wives, with women whose children have been sexually abused, with prostitutes, and with male abusers. Central policy changes and a multi-faceted political backlash have created new pressures for those committed to feminist practice. In each key area, the book explores the nature and impact of these changes for autonomous women's groups and for feminists working in, or with, a variety of social, medical or criminal justice agencies.
