Research and Data: Ending Violence Against Women
On November 25th, the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women registered many initiatives around the world. Designated by the United Nations General
Assembly, the Day aims to sensitize citizens and policy-makers about the fact that women are subject to many different forms of violence. Here is updated data from the UN Women Organization: https://www.unwomen.org/en/what-we-do/ending-violence-against-women/research-and-data.
However, a great effort is needed to integrate the intersectionality perspective into the analyses conducted by governments’ committees and other organizations, and to bring to light the social and cultural factors which often contribute to keeping this social problem hidden.
SSSP has been contributing significantly to this field by publications (see for instance how the problem is discussed in the Social Problems in the Age of COVID-19 book: https://www.sssp1.org/index.cfm/m/840/locationSectionId/0/Social_Problems_in_the_Age_of_COVID-19,_Volume_1:__US_Perspectives ) and by offering important spaces for discussion on gender issues through its Divisions’ activities and the Annual Meetings.
To appreciate these SSSP efforts and to contribute to developing more just societies internationally, please see the Call for Papers for the 2022 SSSP Annual Meeting (submission deadline: January 15, 2022), find the sessions which involve scholars in the discussion about gender issues and violence against women, and join us at the Annual Meeting, https://www.sssp1.org/index.cfm/m/873/fuseaction/ssspsession2.publicView.
