Gender violence in Russia : the politics of feminist intervention  pbk.

Janet Elise Johnson

Just a few years ago, most Russian citizens did not recognize the notion of domestic violence or acknowledge that such a problem existed. Today, after years of local and international pressure to combat violence against women, things have changed dramatically. "Gender Violence in Russia" examines why and how this shift occurred - and why there has been no similar reform on other gender violence issues such as rape, sexual assault, or human trafficking.
