Show Summary Details


In the conclusion to the book, Chapter 10 argues that based on our knowledge of the structural determinants of violence against women, we can anticipate the gendered impacts of various political and economic policies and forces. The chapter surveys the future research agendas and questions that arise from the political economy approach to violence against women advanced in the book. Two key areas look to be the most promising approaches and likely to have the most traction in the medium to long term in achieving the goal of ending violence against women: women’s economic empowerment and men’s leadership by example. Through a review of the scholarship on policy change, the chapter explores how anti–violence against women advocates might move beyond saving one woman at a time to bring about the policy changes that recognize and address the political economy roots of violence against women.
