Review Quotes
M. Wong-Lo, Northeastern Illinois University | Choice
“This multidisciplinary book is a powerful collection of scholarly chapters from leading researchers and experts. . . . By bringing together international examples of research and practice, editors Ellis and Thiara provide an insightful resource that captures the complexities and challenges of developing, implementing, and evaluating educational work to prevent violence against women and girls. Through the work of prominent researchers thoughtfully threaded throughout eleven discerning chapters, the book offers a framework that supports the significance and value of intervention as it relates to educational systems. This volume should be a staple reference for parents and practitioners who seek a comprehensive review and evidence-based techniques to effectively address factors associated with violence against women and girls. . . . Highly recommended.”
Melanie McCarry, University of Central Lancashire, UK

Pam Alldred, Brunel University London

“A valuable book which brings together research and practice and attends to all the dilemmas that arise about defensiveness, victim-blaming and the need to avoid individualized analyses. It should be read widely.”

Moira Carmody, University of Western Sydney, Australia

“This important and timely collection places the prevention of violence against women and girls as central to the work of education in schools and beyond and explores how this can be achieved."
