MI 645 - 1 Global Forms of Violence Against Women

A study of theoretical frameworks that undergird violence against women in Majority World and Western societies including: Female Genital Mutilation (FGM), infanticide, female foeticide, honour-killings, early child-marriage, prostitution, and Gender Based Violence (GBV). Particular attention will be given to the ways in which Christianity has been used as both a weapon and instrument of grace in responding to violence against women.
