Chapter 2 - The Global Gender Crisis

from Part I - Gender and Violence


Rape Culture, Gender Violence, and Religion is a powerful collection of essays (Blyth, Colgan and Edwards 2018) adopting the term ‘rape culture’ to describe the gender violence that ‘has reached endemic levels in numerous countries and communities around the world, where sexual violence, family violence, homophobia, biphobia and transphobia have become a lived reality for many people’ (Blyth et al. 2018: 1).
