Abuse of Women and Children: A Feminist Response

January 1, 1993


The papers in this monograph explore three related areas: Organised child sexual abuse, domestic violence and joint working between agencies dealing with child abuse. They represent the thinking of the London Metropolitan University’s Child and Women Abuse Studies Unit (formerly the Child Abuse Studies Unit). The Unit’s work approaches the complex and multivalent issue of abuse from a feminist perspective, which believes that gender is a critical factor in explaining the prevalence of abusive relationships.
