Violence against women is a widespread phenomenon and represents a huge social and health problem (WHO, 2013) that threatens the development and respect of the human rights of women (United Nations, 1993). This Special Issue aims to collect papers that discuss prevention, protection, and policies for ending violence against women.
This Special Issue will depict deep intimate partner violence (IPV) and it will be focused on women as victims and on their empowerment; on men dealing with their own violence; and on children as victims of witness violence. It will also appreciate papers that describe and analyze the cultural dimensions that reinforce the asymmetry between women and men, and that endure IPV.
This Special Issue aims to deeply explore how IPV is taken in charge by social and health services, and the organizational and structural strategies for ending violence against women; research and intervention with perpetrators; and the protective measures for women and children witnessing intimate partner violence.
