Violence against women is one of the most debated and challenging subjects in women's studies today. This special issue of Women's Studies Quarterly encapsulates recent debates and offers an invaluable framework for exploring its global context and for conveying these ideas to others. With contributions from distinguished scholars around the world, this volume considers not only the different cultural and political contexts of violence, but also the progress that has been made by women throughout the world in identifying and organizing against various forms of violence. By offerring an increased understanding of violence in an international context and by celebrating successful instances of resistance, Teaching About Violence Against Women suggests innovative ways for teachers, students, activists, and crisis intervention specialists to think and to teach about this difficult, often painful, but crucial topic.
