A Literature Review on Violence Against Women

This is a review of research on the prevalence and impact of violence against women, and on interventions. The author emphasises gaps and the lack of evaluative research in the field. The underlying theme is how different aspects within violence against women link together and how this fits in the wider context on gender inequality within society.

This report was commissioned by the National Group on Violence Against Women in Scotland to inform the development of the Executive's agenda on violence against women.
