Army of roses : inside the world of Palestinian women suicide bombers by Barbara Victor ( Book )
8 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 1,004 libraries worldwide
"In this expose of the political and cultural forces now pressing Palestinian women into martyrdom, investigative journalist Victor identifies what she calls "a new level of cynicism" that has destroyed normal, everyday existence in the Middle East, along with the possibility for lasting peace. Tracing the roots of the women's resistance movement back to so-called personal initiative attacks and a brief period of empowerment in the 1980s before religious leaders clamped down, Victor shows how the current generation of Palestinian women has been courted and cajoled into committing these self-destructive and murderous acts."
Getting away with murder : weapons for the war against domestic violence by Raoul Lionel Felder ( Book )
4 editions published between 1996 and 1997 in English and held by 738 libraries worldwide
"There is a war being waged on women in America. Every eighteen seconds, somewhere in the United States, a woman is beaten by her husband or boyfriend. In 1994, nearly half the women murdered in America were killed by their spouse or lover. And these men will probably get a lighter sentence than they would have for assaulting or killing a stranger because their victims were once their lovers." "Raoul Felder, one of the best-known and most successful divorce lawyers in the country, has heard chilling stories of physical beatings and emotional tortures, stories that he might never have believed if he hadn't seen the evidence of this torment with his own eyes. Drawing from his years of experience, Felder and journalist Barbara Victor have delivered a riveting report from the front lines of this war, complete with a plan of attack that includes all the best weapons to fight back against this horror." "What these authors have done is talk to everyone involved with domestic violence from the cop who hates to take domestic dispute calls to the district attorney, judge, or social worker who feels that he can't offer the protection that a victim needs. Additionally, they have interviewed both the victim and the batterer to help us understand the forces that shape this relationship. From each of these, the authors let us hear what is needed to stop the violence now and make suggestions on how we can help change the law or the way things are done to keep it stopped in the future. In Getting Away with Murder you'll discover the first crucial steps that must be taken. Here, you will find the tools necessary to make a difference."--BOOK JACKET.

Extriat de la couverure : "Le 27 janvier 2002, Yasser Arafat appelait les centaines de femmes venues l'écouter ce jour-là à Ramallah à " se sacrifier, comme elles ont toujours su le faire pour leurs familles afin de libérer leurs maris, leurs pères et leurs fils de l'oppression ". L'après-midi même une Palestinienne de 26 ans commettait un attentat-suicide dans un centre commercial de Jérusalem et devenait la première femme kamikaze. Barbara Victor a enquêté en Palestine pour tenter de comprendre ce qui peut pousser ces femmes à se sacrifier en semant la mort autour d'elles. Qui les dirige ? Qui les forme ? Quelles pressions subissent elles ? A travers une série de portraits éclairés par des révélations inédites de leaders politiques et religieux ainsi que de personnalités israéliennes et palestiniennes, fauteur de ce document exceptionnel met en lumière l'effroyable surenchère qui a abouti à l'engagement des femmes kamikazes en Palestine."
