The Struggle for Freedom From Fear

Violence Against Women at the Frontiers of Globalization: A Book Launch with Alison Brysk

Time and Place

Wilson Center 5th Floor Conference Room

Event Details

How can we understand and contest the global wave of violence against women? In this book, Alison Brysk shows that gender violence across countries tends to change as countries develop and liberalize, but not in the ways that we might predict.

Dr. Brysk shows how liberalizing authoritarian countries and transitional democracies may experience more shifting patterns and greater levels of violence against women than less developed and democratic countries, due to changes and uncertainties in economic and political structures.  

Please join the Women in Public Service Project at the Wilson Center for a book event with Dr. Alison Brysk, author of The Struggle for Freedom from Fear: Contesting Violence against Women at the Frontiers of Globalization, as she shares her findings on the profound impact of gender violence as a worldwide problem.
