Sexual Politics of Gendered Violence and Women’s Citizenship argues that governmental responses to incidents of violence against women by the state often winds up sanctioning that violence and shaping a woman’s citizenship long after the incident in question. Drawing from a long-term study of women’s lives in Australia, including before and after a relationship with a violent partner, it investigates the effects of intimate partner violence on aspects of everyday life including housing, employment, mental health, and social participation. This book contributes to theoretical explanations of violence against women by reframing it through the lens of sexual politics and also offers critical insights for the development of social policy and practice
