Synopsis

Confronting Sexism and Violence against Women A Challenge for Social Work by Beverly McPhail, Karen D. Stout

This unique text explores the multitude of ways that sexism and violence profoundly affect women's lives - from sexist language to economic inequalities to sexual harassment and assault. Each chapter includes both policy and practice implications and a continuum model pulls together the various ways women are oppressed in society. Poetry, editorial cartoons, women's personal accounts of violence in their lives, and interesting boxed material engage students.
