♥ Book Title : The Politicization of Safety
☯ Full Synopsis : "A look at gun control, campus sexual assault, immigration, and more that considers the future of responses to domestic violence Domestic violence is commonly assumed to be a bipartisan, nonpolitical issue, with politicians of all stripes claiming to work to end family violence. Nevertheless, the Violence Against Women Act expired for over 500 days between 2012 and 2013 due to differences between the U.S. Senate and House, demonstrating that legal protections for domestic abuse survivors are both highly political and highly vulnerable. Racial and gender politics, the move toward criminalization, reproductive justice concerns, gun control debates, and political interests are increasingly shaping responses to domestic violence, demonstrating the need for greater consideration of the interplay of politics, domestic violence, and how the law works in people’s lives. The Politicization of Safety provides a critical historical perspective on domestic violence responses in the United States. It grapples with the ways in which child welfare systems and civil and criminal justice responses intersect, and considers the different, overlapping ways in which survivors of domestic abuse are forced to cope with institutionalized discrimination based on race, gender, sexual orientation, and immigration status. The book also examines movement politics and the feminist movement with respect to domestic violence policies. The tensions discussed in this book, similar to those involved in the #metoo movement, include questions of accountability, reckoning, redemption, healing, and forgiveness. What is the future of feminism and the movements against gender-based violence and domestic violence? Readers are invited to question assumptions about how society and the legal system respond to intimate partner violence and to challenge the domestic violence field to move beyond old paradigms and contend with larger justice issues."Article| Jane K.

♥ Book Title : At Home in the Law
☯ Full Synopsis : "place of prosecutorial discretion. Protection orders that prohibit all contact between suspected abusers and their partners are designed to end relationships - even over victims' objections. The law's rapidly changing picture of the home has fundamentally moved the boundary between public and private space.

♥ Book Title : Die Frau als besonderes Schutzobjekt strafrechtlicher Normen
☯ Full Synopsis : "Die Gleichheit vor dem Gesetz ist eine der zentralen Saulen eines jeden demokratischen Staates. Die Gultigkeit dieses rechtlichen Postulats ist aber dann zu hinterfragen, wenn, begrundet durch das Geschlecht des Opfers und die damit bedingte biologische Unterlegenheit, Ungleichheit statt Gleichheit herrscht. Die Verfasserin geht daher rechtsvergleichend der Frage nach, ob und wie Frauen als besonderes Schutzobjekt strafrechtlicher Normen in der BRD und den Vereinigten Staaten von Amerika behandelt werden. Gerade im US-amerikanischen Strafrecht ist die Frau als Schutzobjekt auch im rechtlichen Bereich anerkannt, da in den USA der Rechtsfeminismus, also die Ubertragung der Frauenbewegung auf das Recht, traditionell stark vertreten ist. Nach einer Einfuhrung in die historische Entwicklung des Schutzobjektes "Frau" und den Rechtsfeminismus geht die Verfasserin sowohl auf das sexuelle und korperliche Selbstbestimmungsrecht der Frau als auch auf ihre psychische und physische Gesundheit ein und erortert hierfur strafrechtliche Normen, die diese zu schutzen suchen. Dafur stellt sie auf den Themenfeldern Vergewaltigung, Hausliche Gewalt, Nachstellung (Stalking), Exhibitionismus, Prostitution, Genitalverstummelung, Abtreibung und Pornographie die wichtigsten Unterschiede zwischen den jeweiligen Regelungen der beiden Lander dar und geht der Frage nach, ob das Strafrecht in seiner heutigen Form fur den Schutz der Frau angemessen oder reformbedurftig ist. Besonders beleuchtet wird die Frage, welches der beiden Lander eine Vorbildfunktion fur den Schutz der Frau eingenommen hat und ob anderweitig deklarierte Schutzguter eine Gefahr fur den Schutz der Frau darstellen."Article| Sandra Mauer| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : "Trivial complaints"
☯ Full Synopsis : ""Trivial Complaints"explores the historical relationship between privacy and domestic violence through an analysis of litigation and activism. The state has traditionally hesitated in responding to domestic violence, characterizing it as a "private" family matter. The discourse of privacy incorporates presumptions about race, class, and sexuality, and this volume examines the ramifications of such assumptions for victims and activists.Kirsten S. Rambo begins with an analysis of courts' and activists' responses to domestic violence during the late nineteenth century and continues through to the late twentieth century, when the modern battered women's movement emerged on the heels of the battle to secure abortion rights. Rambo explores the seemingly contradictory yet often complementary ways in which the discourse of privacy has been shaped by both movements seeking justice for women. She further examines concepts of privacy as applied to same-sex relationships and domestic violence, and ultimately considers alternative models of privacy that are egalitarian and rooted in empowerment."Article| Kirsten S.

Drawing on their extensive experience, the authors offer a detailed and authoritative exposition of family law illustrated by materials carefully selected from a wide range of sources.

Readers are encouraged to consider how and why the law has developed as it has, what policies it is seeking to pursue, whether it achieves the right balance between the rights and interests of individual family members and the wider public interest, and how it operates in practice. The text is supported by a substantial Online Resource Centre, which features regular updates on the law, supplementary materials, further reading suggestions, and study aids. The ORC also features two chapters, Introduction to Family Law, and Fundamental principles in the law relating to children."Article| Sonia Harris-Short| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : Negotiating Gender Equity in the Global South (Open Access)
☯ Full Synopsis : "The fact that women have achieved higher levels of political inclusion within low- and middle-income countries has generated much speculation about whether this is reaping broader benefits in tackling gender-based inequalities. This book uncovers the multiple political dynamics that influence governments to adopt and implement gender equity policies, pushing the debate beyond simply the role of women’s inclusion in influencing policy. Bringing the politics of development into discussion with feminist literature on women's empowerment, the book proposes the new concept of ‘power domains’ as a way to capture how inter-elite bargaining, coalitional politics, and social movement activism combine to shape policies that promote gender equity. In particular, the book investigates the conditions under which countries in sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia have adopted legislation against domestic violence, which remains widespread in many developing countries. The book demonstrates that women’s presence in formal politics and policy spaces does not fully explain the pace in adopting and implementing domestic violence law. Underlying drivers of change within broader domains of power also include the role of clientelistic politics and informal processes of bargaining, coalition-building, and persuasion; the discursive framing of gender-equitable ideas; and how transnational norms influence women’s political inclusion and gender-inclusive policy outcomes. The comparative approach across Uganda, Rwanda, South Africa, Ghana, India, and Bangladesh demonstrates how advancing gender equality varies by political context and according to the interests surrounding a particular issue. Negotiating Gender Equity in the Global South will be of interest to students and scholars of gender and development, as well as to activists within governments, political parties, nongovernmental organizations, women’s movements, and donor agencies, at national and international levels, who are looking to develop effective strategies for advancing gender equality."Article| Sohela Nazneen| Statement ..."
