Violence against women and children

Violence against women and children Liz Kelly

This textbook, written by Professor Liz Kelly of the University of North London, Great Britain, provides comprehensive coverage of the problem of violence against women and children. The book, which is based on a study of international legal documents and international experience in dealing with the problem, defines terms, describes the problem and discusses how law enforcement agencies cooperate with other state and non-governmental institutions in combating it. The author analyzes acts of violence against women and children in the contemporary world as serious violations of human rights and as an important subject requiring the attention and action of workers of law enforcement. She defines and discusses domestic violence, sexual violence, stalking, honour killings and harmful cultural practices, trafficking in children, violence against children, rape and sexual assault, and sexual harassment and explains the responses these require from the police.
