Intersections between violence against children and violence against women

Intersections between violence against children and violence against women | Women and Gender Studies | Scoop.it

There is growing global recognition of the intersections between violence against women and violence against children. The current evidence shows intersections between intimate partner violence against women and violence against children by parents or caregivers, but limited evidence is available on the links between other forms of violence against women and violence against children. Both violence against women by their (male) intimate partners and violence against children by parents or caregivers are widespread globally. This report describes the process used to determine the priorities for research on the intersections between violence against children and violence against women, and the top 10 research questions identified.

Hidden Voices: A Case Study Analysis of Subject Headings for Book Titles on Women in Science

History is dominated by men; therefore, most of recorded history has been dominated by men, and the history of women has been ignored. The history of women in science and technology fields is particularly difficult to trace and fewer books have been written on the topic in relationship to the number of books on male scientists. Despite rising academic and public interest in the history of women in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM), libraries continue to face the lack of books for purchase as well as online catalogs that are inadequate in capturing the breadth of works on women in STEM. When people try to locate library books about women in STEM, they may run into barriers with subject headings and author-assigned keywords, making accessing these stories difficult without knowing specific titles. This study aims to determine the relationship between author-supplied keywords and Library of Congress Subject Headings on books about women in science. The ramifications for STEM librarians and collection development are discussed.

TRAPPED IN OMAN - BBC Africa Eye documentary

BBC Africa Eye investigates the plight of Malawian women lured to Oman with offers of domestic work, only to be trapped in a cycle of exploitation, with little hope of escape.

Click here to subscribe to our channel 👉🏽 http://bit.ly/subscribetoafrica

Through WhatsApp voice notes, videos, and texts, this documentary reveals their abusive ordeals, and exposes the tactics of agents that traffic and then abandon them. The investigation also examines the poverty and desperation that leads young people to seek opportunities in the Middle East, and the weak justice system that often allows their employers to abuse them with impunity.

Intimate testimonies reveal widespread accounts of sexual and physical abuse, or worse, of African workers - and the film follows the work of an extraordinary network of women working across three continents fighting to bring them home, often against impossible odds.
