Review Quotes
Margaret Abraham, Hofstra University
“This is a much needed, well researched, and enormously insightful book that successfully brings together the best policies and practices from across the globe in stopping rape. A must read for improved strategic planning and effective interventions to prevent rape at the local, national, and international levels.”
Larry Ray, University of Kent, UK
“An exceptional analysis of the research and policies of rape prevention in an international context. Informed by a critical political economy of gender inequality, it is essential reading for anyone wanting to understand global gendered violence.”
Mieke Verloo, Radboud University, the Netherlands
“This book is a landmark. Filled to the brim with critical assessments and clear descriptions of the very best practices for stopping rape, it has the bonus of a complex theoretical understanding of what is needed to finally stop rape.”
