Gender-based Violence: Perspectives from Africa, the Middle East, and India
Djamba Yanyi K. and Sitawa R. Kimuna, editors. New York: Springer International Publishing, 2015. 

Contributors discuss gender-based violence in Africa, the Middle East, and India, three regions where the cultural norms limit women’s autonomy. Topics include men’s attitudes towards domestic violence in Africa, links between domestic abuse and HIV, the effects of physical abuse on reproductive health, the role of youth aggressive behavior in nonconsensual sex, and the role of gender norms in spousal abuse.
