About this product
- DescriptionJust a few years ago, most Russian citizens did t recognize the tion of domestic violence or ackwledge that such a problem existed. Today, after years of local and international pressure to combat violence against women, things have changed dramatically. Gender Violence in Russia examines why and how this shift occurred-and why there has been similar reform on other gender violence issues such as rape, sexual assault, or human trafficking. Drawing on more than a decade of research, Janet Elise Johnson analyzes media coverage and survey data to explain why some interventions succeed while others fail. She describes the local-global dynamics between a range of international actors, from feminist activists to national governments, and an equally diverse set of Russian organizations and institutions.
- Author BiographyJanet Elise Johnson is Associate Professor of Political Science and Women's Studies at Brooklyn College, CUNY, and editor, with Jean C. Robinson, of Living Gender after Communism (IUP, 2007).
