This is the first anthology to take a theoretical look at violence against
women. Each essay shows how philosophy provides a powerful tool for examining a
difficult and deep-rooted social problem. Stanley G. French, Wanda Teays, and
Laura M. Purdy, all philosophers, present a familiar phenomenon in a new and
striking fashion.
The editors employ a two-tiered approach to this vital issue. Contributors
consider both interpersonal violence, such as rape and battering; and also
systemic violence, such as sexual harassment, pornography, prostitution, and
violence in a medical context. The editors have further broadened the
discussion to include such cross-cultural issues as rape in war, dowry deaths,
female genital mutilation, and international policies on violence against
women. Against this wide range of topics, which integrate personal perspectives
with the philosophical, the contributors offer powerful analyses of the causes
and effects of violence against women, as well as potential policies for
effecting change.
