Choice: Current Reviews for Academic Libraries
Throughout the world, violence against women and girls is a critical societal issue. While females are most often the victims, it is also true that women, and increasingly girls, are also responsible for violent acts. This essay highlights key publications covering the important topic of violence in the lives of women and girls, as both victims and perpetrators. Resources discussed examine a wide range of topics, including domestic violence, rape, sexual harassment, bullying, homicide, stalking, and honor crimes. Separate sections address the increasing violence exhibited by girls, as well as female involvement in terrorism. Although this essay cannot cover every topic in depth, it can serve as a starting point for research on these issues.
