Femicide : the politics of woman killing( Book )

13 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 664 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"'There's no place like home.' This familiar phrase invokes the image of an ideal: home as safe haven and shelter from the world. For women who have been victims of femicide - misogynist killing by men - these simple words take on a disturbing new meaning. There is indeed no place like home for a woman who has died at the hands of a man, because it is there that she was least safe from harm. The threat of violent death for a woman is in fact greatest in her own home. And her killer is likely no stranger, no masked psychopath, but someone who knew her intimately, a companion or former companion, a husband or lover. In Femicide: The Politics of Woman Killing editors Jill Radford and Diana E.H. Russell have compiled more than 40 articles and essays that document and describe such terrible truths about the phenomenon of femicide. The hearings for Clarence Thomas's nomination to the U.S. Supreme Court and the trials of William Kennedy Smith and Mike Tyson put the issues of sexual harassment and date rape on the mainstream map. But femicide, the most violent form of sexist behavior, has yet to be widely acknowledged and recognized as a brutal expression of hatred for women. A woman killed in her home by her former husband, a woman killed by a serial murderer such as Great Britain's Yorkshire Ripper or Los Angeles' Hillside Strangler, a woman killed by a mass murderer such as Marc Lépine, who in 1989 shot to death 14 female students at the University of Montreal, are all to some degree victims of misogyny and a destructive desire for power, argue Radford and Russell. But these motivations for such violence are rarely acknowledged. The murderer's behavior is usually viewed as aberrant and unexplainable; he is a 'beast' or an 'animal,' not a man who has committed an act of sexual violence. If lynching has become synonymous with racism, pogrom synonymous with anti-Semitism, why has it been so difficult to establish the connection between femicide and sexism?The connection is made repeatedly in Femicide. Contributors address the deaths of the thousands of women in sixteenth- and seventeenth-century England burned as witches; female infanticide and suttee, or death by fire, in India; and the slaying of Asian-American, African-American, and American-Indian women in the United States. No respecter of race, ethnicity, or social class, femicide occurs across countries, continents, and cultures. The killing of minority women is examined by several writers, who attribute their deaths to the compound effects of racist and sexist violence. Femicide also assesses the culpability of the media and the judicial system in putting the character of the victim, rather than the act of the murderer, on trial. Both the courts and the press, Radford and Russell say, help perpetuate the notion that the female victim is responsible for the crime committed against her. Mass market films and pornography are likewise held accountable for their role in the selling and glamorizing of sexual violence. A testimony to the existence of femicide, this volume is as much an act of resistance. Numerous contributors chronicle the efforts of women working singly and in unison to reveal the pervasiveness of this ultimate form of sexual violence, to reach out to the friends and families of its victims, and to fight back against it"--Unedited summary from book jacket

Behind closed doors in white South Africa : incest survivors tell their stories by Diana E. H Russell( Book )

8 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 193 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The intent in this book is to tear away the veil of secrecy that surrounds incestuous abuse in white South Africa by presenting five in-depth personal accounts of this heinous form of sexual exploitation as told by the survivors. Each of these accounts includes an analysis of important incest-related issues raised by the survivor's story. Another objective is to explore the connections between the often cruel sexual exploitation of girls by their white male relatives and the brutal exploitation of black people by white men in South Africa
Against pornography : the evidence of harm by Diana E. H Russell( Book )

6 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 127 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Because Dr. Diana Russell believes that seeing pornography is the most powerful evidence of the woman-hatred inherent in it, she reprinted over 100 examples of pornographic photographs in this book. She chose to risk being sued for publishing these pictures because she was unwilling to obtain permission from the pornographers. "Against Pornography" also contains a succinct summary of some of the major scientific research on this subject, and an explication of her original and convincing theory of how pornography causes rape

Incestuous abuse : its long-term effects : an exploratory study by Diana E. H Russell( Book )

2 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 42 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Despite the growing recognition of the prevalence of incest which is challenging traditional views about the family as a safe haven for children, there is a serious paucity of scientific research on incest in South Africa in the new field of family violence. Almost a century after Sigmund Freud dismissed most women's reports of incest victimization as wishful fantasy, the extent of the damage done by this form of abuse remains controversial in South Africa, with some researchers maintaining that incest victims often suffer no severe effects. This report presents the findings of a qualitative study designed to explore the short- and long-term effects of incestuous abuse experienced by 20 adult women incest survivors. Although all but one of the in-depth interviews were conducted with women who at the time were residing in Cape Town, the places in which the incestuous abuse had occurred are dispersed throughout South Africa. The purpose of this study is to inform policy discussions on incestuous abuse, violence in South Africa, and violence against women in general. Includes information on prevalence of incestuous abuse, study methodology, characteristics of incestuous abuse, initial effects abuse; and long-terms effects. The document provides extensive tables and three appendices. (Jbj)
Feminicidio : una perspectiva global( Book )

6 editions published in 2006 in Spanish and held by 30 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"El feminicidio - crimen de odio contra las mujeres por ser mujeres - es el punto culminante de una espiral de violencia originada en la relación desigual entre mujeres y hombres en la sociedad patriarcal. En estas sociedades, mujeres y hombres aprenden normas, pautas y valores culturales con diferentes contenidos e intencionalidad según el género; de acuerdo con ellos los hombres se adjudican derechos y libertades que nunca se han extendido hacia las mujeres. La violencia feminicida es resultado de prácticas sociales, culturales, judiciales y políticas que avalan el comportamiento agresivo de los varones; se produce y legitima históricamente a través de instituciones sociales y del Estado. La reproducción de la violencia es un recurso de control y regulación de la dominación patriarcal. Hoy, como desde mediados del siglo XX, mujeres feministas luchan por visibilizar y erradicar los diferentes tipos de violencia de que son objeto las mujeres, es decir, desde la violencia simbólica hasta el homicidio. De acuerdo con las autoras, "El feminicidio se encuentra en el extremo de un continuo de aterrorizamiento sexista a mujeres y niñas. Violación, tortura, mutilación, esclavitud sexual, abuso sexual infantil incestuoso y extrafamiliar, maltrato físico y emocional, y casos serios de acoso sexual se encuentran también en este continuo. Siempre que estas formas de terrorismo sexual desembocan en la muerte, se convierten en feminicidios". Este libro da cuenta de casos de feminicidio en países y culturas tan diferentes - como México, Guatemala, Estados Unidos, Sudáfrica, Ruanda, Burundi, Israel, China y Australia -, que demuestran que las causas del problema son estructurales y, por tanto, de una gran complejidad que requiere ser enfrentada desde los ámbitos político, jurídico, social y cultural, por todos los niveles de gobierno y por los organismos internacionales."
