The Crawford School of Public Policy hosts a book launch – Involving men to stop violence against women.

Question: Has men’s involvement resulted in positive change, or has it reinforced the belief that women need to be rescued by men?

Dr Joyce Wu’s book provides a feminist analysis of men’s motivations for joining violence against women’s movement. Through extensive fieldwork in Afghanistan, Pakistan and East Timor, this innovative title explores the roles men play in violence against women programs, and provides empirical and critical analysis of how men’s feminist involvement is translated into benevolent patriarchy.

The book will be launched by Helen Szoke AO, Executive Director of Oxfam Australia. Oxfam was the host organisation for the fieldwork research.

Date: Monday 07 May 2018
Time: 5.30pm–6.30pm
Venue: Canberry/Springbank Room, Level 1, JG Crawford Building 132, Lennox Crossing, ANU
