Gender Violence: Prevalence, Implications, and Global Perspectives



Series: Bullying and Victimization, Ethical Issues in the 21st Century
BISAC: SOC032000

This timely book begins a conversation about a field of practice which has been marred by victims of all kinds, races, and cultures. The author aims is to allow a platform for a country-to-country dialogue. A conversation that centers not only on where people are physically located, but what violence means when coupled with gender differences. This book examines different types of violence and its effect on different cultures from a global perspective, but also shares the prevalence and implications these acts have for humanity as a whole.
