Engaging With Men Who Abuse Women Partners

Historically professionals dealing with domestic abuse have struggled to engage with men who are abusive to women partners. Research suggests that the reasons for this include fear of challenging men who have been violent, fear of inadvertently increasing risks to the men's partners and a lack of confidence/knowledge in how to work with these men. This course aims to deal with these and other obstacles to engaging with abusive men.

Cybercrime: What’s gender got to do with it? A look at the evidence.

As  Judy Wajcman (2010), argues in her Feminist Theories of Technology, “technology . . . is neither inherently patriarchal nor unambiguously liberating” (p. 148), but women’s lived experience of technology frame an intrinsically gendered phenomenon. The last three decades have seen the emergence and rapid spread of access to and use of the internet and multiple forms of electronic media in Europe and elsewhere.  For good or ill, the penetration of such media into our public and private lives has inevitably expanded the field of gender-based violence.
