Violence Against Women and the Feminist Movement
This chapter discusses the feminist redefinition of violence and the responses the movement produced, with particular reference to Sweden and the UK. It moves on to discuss largely US-based literature concerned with the history and development of the movement detailing the supposed transition from a social movement stance to a service delivery orientation and the reasons why this occurred. Lastly, consideration is given to social movement scholarship discussing the usefulness and limitations of this for studying the women’s and anti-violence movements.
