Intimate Intrusions: Women's Experience of Male Violence (Hardback)Elizabeth Stanko (author)
- We can order this
First published in 1985, this book looks at the victimisation of women, focusing on the four main areas of incest, rape, physical violence, and sexual harassment. Elizabeth Stanko's work is based on original research and interviews with police forces, victims and others involved. It examines women's experiences of male violence and looks at the reactions of those to whom women complain, including police officers, judges and union officials. The book analyses the decision making process of the criminal justice system and of administrative personnel at the time of publication, and Stanko shows how such institutions can be carriers of a male point of view.
