Protest, Policy, and the Problem of Violence Against Women: A Cross-National Comparison. By S. Laurel Weldon. Pittsburgh: University of Pittsburgh Press, 2002. 288p. $45.00 cloth, $19.95 paper

  • Leela Fernandes (a1)

In recent decades, women's movements have mobilized in a range of contexts in order to press for international and national governmental responses to violence against women. Despite the scope of such activity in the public realm, there has been relatively little scholarly analysis of cross-national variations in governmental responses to the problem of violence against women. Laurel Weldon's study is an important response to this scholarly gap in both the fields of policy studies and of women and politics.
