Women, Violence and Social Change demonstrates how refuges and shelters stand as the core of the battered women's movement, providing a basis for pragmatic support, political action and radical renewal. From this base movements in Britain and the United States have challenged the police, courts and social services to provide greater assistance to women. The book provides important evidence on the way social movements can successfully challenge institutions of the State as well as salutatory lessons on the nature of diverted and thwarted struggle.

Throughout the book the Dobashes' years of researching violence against women is illustrated in the depth of their analysis. They maintain the tradition established in their first book, Violence Against Wives, which was widely accalimed.

Reviews

'… an incisive, clear and challenging history … exciting to read … This book represents a significant contribution to the knowledge about, and the struggle against, men's private violence to women.' - Betsy Stanko, British Journal of Criminology

'The scope attempted is admirable; the authors take on not only the important topics a comprehensive review of the battered women's movement must cover but also their historical and theoretical roots … broader in coverage than anything else on the market.' - Contemporary Sociology
