Violence against women

Roger Watson, Editor-in-Chief

All violence is reprehensible but violence against women is in a category of its own. Women have been exploited by men and by male dominated societies for as long as history records and, as we will see in the forthcoming series of JAN interactive entries, it takes many forms from male perpetrated domestic violence to societal violence in the shape of female genital mutilation.

Dr Parveen Ali
25 November International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women and we will be running a series of JAN interactive entries from 25 November through to 10 December 2016 followed by the launch of a special virtual issue of JAN gathering articles on violence against women together.  For a period these will be free to download.  Both the JAN interactive series and the JAN special virtual issue will be edited by Parveen Ali from the University of Sheffield, UK. Parveen is an expert on interpersonal violence and has studied this in the Pakistani community in Pakistan and England.
