    schema:description "Available Open Access under CC-BY-NC licence. The extent of violence against women is currently hidden. How should violence be measured? How should research and new ways of thinking about violence improve its measurement? Could improved measurement change policy? The book is a guide to how the measurement of violence can be best achieved. It shows how to make femicide, rape, domestic violence, and FGM visible in official statistics. It offers practical guidance on definitions, indicators and coordination mechanisms. It reflects on theoretical debates on 'what is gender', 'what is violence', and 'the concept of coercive control'. and introduces the concept of 'gender saturated context'. Analysing the socially constructed nature of statistics and the links between knowledge and power, it sets new standards and guidelines to influence the measurement of violence in the coming decades."@en ;
    schema:description "Both a guide to international debate on the measurement of gender-based violence (GBV) for policy purposes and a handbook on how those measurements can be best achieved, this book draws on cutting-edge statistical research to propose new measurement methods designed for promoting gender equality in the contemporary world. As policy aimed at reducing violence or providing assistance to women rarely tackles the underlying issue of gender inequality, and vice versa, there exists a clear need for guidance. Covering homicide (and femicide specifically), rape and sexual assault, domestic and intimate partner violence, female genital mutilation, and human trafficking, and including practical tools such as definitions of key terms, indicators, and coordination mechanisms, this book provides a framework for measuring GBV that will shape service design, service delivery, and research practices. Engaging with the political nature of statistics and the links between knowledge and power, The Concept and Measurement of Violence against Women and Men has the potential to set new standards and guidelines for decades to come.--"@en ;
