Featured Book: Crimes Against Women

Published under the initiative and coordination the American Graduate School in Paris Research Center, Crimes Against Women (New York: Nova Publishers, 2010) is a collective work edited by AGS professor Professor Wingeate Pike, with a foreword by Bangladeshi author and Human Rights advocate Taslima Nasrin.

The book presents a survey of acts of violence, past and present, that women have endured throughout the world, and calls upon governments, intergovernmental organizations and NGOs to address this issue. The 29 chapters are organized around a three-fold focus : examining gender-related crimes rooted in concept and law, those deriving from religion, customs and traditions, and those perpetrated in times of conflict. The twenty-eight articles take a broad variety of approaches, ranging from the philosophical and legalistic to the narrative reporting of contributors working in the field.

The painting on the cover of the book was done by the British figurative painter Charlotte Lyon.
