    schema:reviewBody ""Bringing together a series of life-history interviews with nine women, this study urges a departure from established approaches that position women as victims of exclusively male violence. Instead, Gail Garfield explores what happens when women's ability to make decisions and act upon those choices comes into conflict with cultural and social constraints. Chapters explore how women experience radicalized or class-based violence, how these forms of violence are related to gendered violence, and what these violations mean to a woman's sense of identity. By showing how women maintain, sustain, and in some instances regain their sense of human worth as a result of their experiences of violation, Garfield complicates the existing dialogue on violence against women in new and important ways."--Jacket." ;
