Description : Eliminating long-term structural causes of violence require profound soical, cultural and economic change. These in turn, need the institutional and political impetus that requires a re-assessment of collective beliefs, motivations and behaviours related to gender, power and powerlessness. The papers presented in this volume explore the different kinds of partnerships for ending gender-based violence, and men's roles and responsibilities with them.

Description : Young men undergo significant changes during their years in college. They wrestle with "big questions," which are essentially spiritual questions, as they ponder who they are, what they believe, what kind of persons they want to become, and how they might shape the world into something they can feel comfortable being themselves in. Those who participate in men's groups realize that their involvement can nurture their inner lives as they explore these questions and connect to transcendent values and a vision of a larger whole. This book includes historical and sociological perspectives on men and spirituality and an expanded case study of how one campus pioneered in the development of men's spirituality groups, which became a model for other campuses. It includes quantitative empirical research that explores college men's openness to spirituality and their interest in men's groups. The book's most extensive discussion is based on a qualitative analysis of thirty-six interviews with male college students, focusing on their understanding of the relationship between their masculinity and their spirituality, and how spirituality groups provided a venue in which they could begin to engage what it means to be spiritual and what it means to be a man.

Description : "In the midst of unprecedented attention to gender based violence (GBV) globally, prompted in part by the #MeToo movement, this book provides a new analysis of how higher education cultures can be transformed. It offers reflections from faculty, staff and students about how change has happened and could happen on their campuses in ways that go beyond implementation of programmes and policies. Building on what is already known from decades of scholarship and practice in the US, and more recent attention elsewhere, this book provides an inter-disciplinary, international overview of attempts to transform higher education cultures in order to eradicate GBV.. Change happens because people act, usually with others. At the heart of transformative efforts lie collaborations between faculty, staff, students, activists and community organisations. The contributors to the book reflect on what makes for constructive, effective collaborations and how to avoid the common mistakes in working with others to end GBV. They consider what has worked to challenge the reluctance-or outright hostility-they have encountered in their work against GBV and how their collaborations have succeeded in transforming the ways we think about GV and what we do about it.Chapters focus on experiences in Canada, the US, England, Scotland, France and India to examine different approaches to tackling GBV in higher education. They reveal the cultural variations in which GBV occurs as well as the similarities across cultures-that GBV Is committed overwhelmingly by men against women and reflects a determination to assert masculine power. Together, they demonstrate that, to make higher education a safe environment for all, nothing short of a transformation is required"--

Description : What does it mean for men to join with women as allies in preventing sexual assault and domestic violence? Based on life history interviews with men and women anti-violence activists aged 22 to 70, Some Men explores the strains and tensions of men's work as feminist allies. When feminist women began to mobilize against rape and domestic violence, setting up shelters and rape crisis centers, a few men asked what they could do to help. They were directed "upstream," and told to "talk to the men" with the goal of preventing future acts of violence. This is a book about men who took this charge seriously, committing themselves to working with boys and men to stop violence, and to change the definition of what it means to be a man. The book examines the experiences of three generational cohorts: a movement cohort of men who engaged with anti-violence work in the 1970s and early 1980s, during the height of the feminist anti-violence mobilizations; a bridge cohort who engaged with anti-violence work from the mid-1980s into the 1990s, as feminism receded as a mass movement and activists built sustainable organizations; a professional cohort who engaged from the mid-1990s to the present, as anti-violence work has become embedded in community and campus organizations, non-profits, and the state. Across these different time periods, stories from life history interviews illuminate men's varying paths--including men of different ethnic and class backgrounds--into anti-violence work. Some Men explores the promise of men's violence prevention work with boys and men in schools, college sports, fraternities, and the U.S. military. It illuminates the strains and tensions of such work--including the reproduction of male privilege in feminist spheres--and explores how men and women navigate these tensions.

Description : South African women's still-increasing presence in local, provincial, and national institutions has inspired sweeping legislation aimed at advancing women's rights and opportunity. Yet the country remains plagued by sexual assault, rape, and intimate partner violence. Hannah E. Britton examines the reasons gendered violence persists in relationship to social inequalities even after women assume political power. Venturing into South African communities, Britton invites service providers, religious and traditional leaders, police officers, and medical professionals to address gender-based violence in their own words. Britton finds the recent turn toward carceral solutions—with a focus on arrests and prosecutions—fails to address the complexities of the problem and looks at how changing specific community dynamics can defuse interpersonal violence. She also examines how place and space affect the implementation of policy and suggests practical ways policymakers can support street level workers. Clear-eyed and revealing, Ending Gender-Based Violence offers needed tools for breaking cycles of brutality and inequality around the world.

Description : "Violence against women is no more a private matter; it is indeed a global issue to be tackled through appropriate laws, especially in the domestic sphere, legal protection for the survivors, the judicial system and follow-up mechanisms. This study analyses successful experiences and good practices in implementing the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women. It outlines and evaluates the services available to women victims of violence in ESCWA member states with the aim of identifying the appropriate interventions and assist stakeholders in developing services in conformity with international standards. The study examines three types of services; protection, rehabilitation and prevention, offered by government and non-governmental organisations."--Back cover

Description : Women's Activism in South Africa provides the most comprehensive collection of women's experiences within civil society since the 1994 transition. This book captures South African women's stories of collective activism and social change at a crucial point for the future of democracy in the country, if not the continent. Pulling together the voices of activists and scholars, South Africa's path to democracy and the assurance of gender rights emerge as a complex journey of both successes and challenges. The collection elucidates a new form of pragmatic feminism, building upon the elasticity between the state and civil society. What the cases demonstrate is that while the state itself may not be a panacea, it still represents a key source of power and the primary locus of vital resources, including the rights of citizenship, access to basic needs, and the promise of protection from gender-based violence â?? all central to women's particular needs in South Africa.
