In Canada, every six days, a woman dies from domestic violence. Between 1995 and 2004, domestic homicides accounted for one-third of the 4,502 solved murders in Canada. Of these, 47 percent were spousal homicides, and four out of five involved a current or former husband against his wife.

In Violence Against Women, award-winning author Walter S. DeKeseredy offers a passionate but well-documented sociological overview of these sobering problems. He starts by outlining the scope of the challenge and by debunking current attempts to label intimate violence as gender neutral. He then lays bare the structural practices that sustain this violence, leading to a discussion of long- and short-term policies to confront the issue. DeKeseredy clearly addresses male complicity and demonstrates how boys and men can change the situation. Throughout, he provides an impassioned call to action for women, men, and policymakers who want to fight against violence directed at women.
