FacingPatriarchy challenges current thinking aboutmen's violence against women. Drawing upon radical and intersectional feministtheory and critical masculinity studies, the book locates men's violence withinthe structures and processes of patriarchy. Addressing the limitations ofcurrent violence prevention policies, Bob Pease argues that a nuancedconceptualisation of patriarchy, that accounts for a variety of patriarchalstructures, intersections with other forms of inequality, patriarchal ideologies,men's peer group relations, men's sexist practices and the construction ofpatriarchal subjectivities, is required to understand the links between genderand men's violence against women.Pease shows that men's violence againstwomen needs to be understood in the context of other forms of men's violence,including violence against boys and other men, in the involvement of men inwars and conflicts between nations and men's ecologically destructive practiceswhich constitute a form of slow violence. With crucial implications forpriorities in violence prevention, gender equality promotion and in strategiesfor engaging men in this work, FacingPatriarchy offers new hope for the elimination of men's violence.This is an essential book for scholars,practitioners, activists and policy makers involved in violence prevention innational and international contexts.
