Feminist Frameworks offers a wideranging review of feminist understandings of violence against women. It is founded on a bedrock or radical feminism, which offers the most comprehensive analysis of the nature and meanings of mens violence against women and children. The book examines feminist analyses in a number of broad areas, including debates around the definition and origins of male violence, critiques of sex and sexuality, the intersection of racism and sexism in some forms of sexualized violence, violence as a process, the extent to which male perpetrators act out of choice and hence should be held accountable, feminist interventions in the violence process, and feminisms relation to law. Lisa S. Price has taught Womens Studies at Simon Fraser University, and is a former Research Associate at the Womens Research Centre.
