The essays in Killing Women: The Visual Culture of Gender and Violence find important connections in the ways that women are portrayed in relation to violence, whether they are murder victims or killers. The book's extensive cultural contexts acknowledge and engage with contemporary theories and practices of identity politics and debates about the ethics and politics of representation itself. Does representation produce or reproduce the conditions of violence? Is representation itself a form of violence? This book adds significant new dimensions to the characterization of gender and violence by discussing nationalism and war, feminist media, and the depiction of violence throughout society.

MEDIA REVIEWS
``Represents a significant contribution to the study of violence and women, one that offers productive avenues of development for the emerging fields of new media studies.'' -- Cheryl Simon -- Canadian Journal of Film Studies, Volume 16, number 2, Fall 2007, 200804
``Burfoot and Lord create a space where a critical visual vocabulary on gendered violence, gender and violence, and gender as violence are fused together. The presence of this compilation further demonstrates how the distinct paths of art, activism, and community intersect to challenge the boundaries of academic theory and practice.'' -- Kathryn Travis -- Canadian Woman Studies, Volume 27, number 1, 201002
