Prevention of Violence Against Women and Girls - Mainstreaming in Development Programmes (Paperback): Tamsin Bradley, Janet... Prevention of Violence Against Women and Girls - Mainstreaming in Development Programmes (Paperback)
Tamsin Bradley, Janet Gruber
R893 R727 Discovery Miles 7 270 Save R166 (19%) Ships in 10 - 20 working days

Prevention of Violence Against Women and Girls argues that women and girls are vulnerable across all areas of society, and that therefore a commitment to end violence against women and girls needs to be embedded into all development programmes, regardless of sectorial focus. This book presents an innovative framework for sensitisation and action across development programmes, based on emerging best practices and lessons learnt, and illustrated through a number of country contexts and a range of programmes. Overall, it argues that SDG 5 can only be achieved with a systematic model for mainstreaming an end to violence against women and girls, no matter what the priorities of the particular development programme might be. Demonstrating how the approach can be applied across contexts, the authors explore cases from the energy sector, health and humanitarian intervention, and from countries as varied as South Sudan, Myanmar, Rwanda, Nepal, and Kenya. Drawing on nearly three decades of experience working on gender, health, and violence against women programmes as both practitioners and academics, the authors present key lessons which can be used by students, researchers, and practitioners alike.

Interrogating Harmful Cultural Practices - Gender, Culture and Coercion (Paperback): Chia Longman, Tamsin Bradley Interrogating Harmful Cultural Practices - Gender, Culture and Coercion (Paperback)
Chia Longman, Tamsin Bradley
R999 Discovery Miles 9 990 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

This volume explores a variety of 'harmful cultural practices': a term increasingly employed by organizations working within a human rights framework to refer to certain discriminatory practices against women in the global South. Drawing on recent work by feminists across the social sciences, as well as activists from around the world, this volume discusses and presents research on practices such as veiling, forced marriage, honour related and dowry violence, female genital 'mutilation', lip plates and sex segregation in public space. With attention to the analytic utility of the notion of harmful cultural practices, this volume explores questions surrounding the contribution of feminist thought to international and NGO policies on such practices, whether western beauty practices should be analysed in similar terms, or should the notion as such from an anthropological perspective be rejected, how harmful cultural practices relate to processes of culturalization, religionization and secularization, and how they can be challenged, come to transform and disappear. Presenting concrete, empirical case studies from Africa, South East Asia, Europe and the UK Interrogating Harmful Cultural Practices will be of interest to scholars of sociology, anthropology, development and law with interests in gender, the body, violence and women's agency.

Religion and Gender in the Developing World - Faith-Based Organizations and Feminism in India (Paperback): Tamsin Bradley Religion and Gender in the Developing World - Faith-Based Organizations and Feminism in India (Paperback)
Tamsin Bradley
R790 Discovery Miles 7 900 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

Faith-based development organizations have become a central part of the lives of the women of rural Rajasthan, and have come to represent an important aspect of both individual and collective identities. And yet, religious teachings continue to be used to exclude women from public decision making forums and render them vulnerable to increasing levels of domestic violence. In a unique multi-disciplinary approach, combining a range of subjects, particularly gender studies, Bradley provides a unique study of the contradictory and complex role of development organisations and faith organizations in the lives of women in rural Rajasthan. This book will be of interest to students, reseachers and policy makers involved in various fields, including those of Development Studies, Religion, Gender Studies and Social Anthropology.

Global Perspectives on Violence against Women and Girls (Hardcover): Tamsin Bradley Global Perspectives on Violence against Women and Girls (Hardcover)
Tamsin Bradley
R1,817 Discovery Miles 18 170 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

As the movement to end all forms of violence against women and girls (VAWG) gains momentum around the world, this provocative new work applies an innovative theoretical lens to gendered violence across a wide variety of countries and contexts. Global Perspectives on Violence against Women and Girls engages with VAWG in the UK and across the global South, including case studies from India, Pakistan and South Sudan. Considering various forms of violence including harmful cultural practices such as FGM to Early Child Marriage, dowry and bride price related harassment, stranger rape, work-based harassment, Intimate Partner Violence and other forms of domestic violence, this important volume creates an original critical lens by combining the ecology model, the intersectional approach and a spectrum designed to identify the range of different forms of VAWG in a given context. Arguing for a greater understanding of the local political and cultural contexts in which VAWG is allowed to flourish, Global Perspectives on Violence against Women and Girls is one of the few works to give due prominence to local women's organizations in the global South and beyond, who it argues must ultimately play the leading role in ending VAWG. At a time when the fight against violent misogyny finds itself at a critical turning point, this volume makes a substantial and timely contribution towards the ultimate goal of ending VAWG.

Women and Violence in India - Gender, Oppression and the Politics of Neoliberalism (Hardcover): Tamsin Bradley Women and Violence in India - Gender, Oppression and the Politics of Neoliberalism (Hardcover)
Tamsin Bradley
R2,625 Discovery Miles 26 250 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

India's endemic gender-based violence has received increased international scrutiny and provoked waves of domestic protest and activism. In recent years, related studies on India and South Asia have proliferated but their analyses often fail to identify why violence flourishes. Unwilling to simply accept patriarchy as the answer, Tamsin Bradley presents new research examining how different groups in India conceptualise violence against women, revealing beliefs around religion, caste and gender that render aggression socially acceptable. She also analyses the role that neoliberalism, and its corollary consumerism, play in reducing women to commodity objects for barter or exchange. Unpacking varied conservative, liberal and neoliberal ideologies active in India today, Bradley argues that they can converge unexpectedly to normalise violence against women. Due to these complex and overlapping factors, rates of violence against women in India have actually increased despite decades of feminist campaigning. This book will be crucial to those studying Indian gender politics and violence, but also presents new data and methodologies which have practical implications for researchers and policymakers worldwide.

Dowry - Bridging the Gap between Theory and Practice (Paperback): Tamsin Bradley, Emma Tomalin, Mangala Subramaniam Dowry - Bridging the Gap between Theory and Practice (Paperback)
Tamsin Bradley, Emma Tomalin, Mangala Subramaniam
R925 Discovery Miles 9 250 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

The concept of a Dowry, whilst known throughout the world, is one which is much misunderstood and often regarded as synonymous with acts of violence against women. This exciting new volume seeks to debunk the overly simplistic conceptions of Dowry that are produced by a lack of understanding of this cultural practice. Taking a variety of theoretical and active approaches, this work successfully bridges the gap between today's prevailing theory and practice, whilst enshrining the centrality of South Asian women's own experiences as a starting point to any discussion. Through advocating the use of collective processes to liberate women, this book empowers women to be the agents of change as opposed to merely victims. Bringing a unique diversity of perspectives from leading academics and activists, this book opens up the term 'Dowry' to undertake a study of its role in various communities across the world from the practice of 'mehr' amongst Muslim societies, the role of the dowry in Bangladesh, and its position in the wider diasporic populations globally. The groundbreaking, multidisciplinary book is essential reading for students, policymakers, practitioners and activists alike.

Development agencies are recognizing the importance of anthropology in the critical evaluation of grass roots NGOs and development practice in general. Here, anthropology, development, and religion are uniquely combined in a manner that has practical significance for how NGOs carry out their work. Tamsin Bradley examines the interfaces between religion, gender, anthropology, and social development and focuses on the operation of grassroots Non-Governmental Organizations. She argues that these agencies need to adopt a new methodology if they are to increase efficiency. This is made clear in a series of ethnographic case studies documenting the experiences of three Rajasthani village women. This book constructs a new approach to development practice, incorporating ethnographic techniques that are designed to encourage development workers to listen to the needs of those they seek to help.

Is the practice of FGM (female genital mutilation) on the rise in the UK and US? Why? What happens to religious and cultural traditions when they are taken from their context into a new, often secular, state? "Women, Violence, and Tradition" is a fascinating look into contemporary life histories of women from ethnic minority communities in the West, focusing specifically on their experiences of under-researched cultural practices. The book gives close insight into how ethnic minority women today navigate between their religious and cultural traditions and the secular state in which they live. The volume illuminates areas of tension and difficulty when some women actively try to reform aspects of their tradition while remaining fiercely loyal to their cultural identity. Other examples highlight how young women are choosing to endorse traditional practices, seeing this as an important way of demonstrating the legitimacy of their religion and culture in the face of increasing hostility. This brave and original book tackles the sensitive and controversial issue of FGM, as well as surveying changing attitudes and practices around marriage and divorce. Using a cross-cultural perspective, the book draws in the views of activists and community organizations who work with women to confront injustice.
