The collection of chapters in this book explore the limits and possibilities of the law in relation to women and male violence. This book draws on authors from Australia and New Zealand to explore the theoretical and practical difficulties of women who may need the legal system's response to violence against them, but often find their disempowerment is the result. Issues explored by scholars in related fields include violence against Aboriginal women, gender bias in the law, domestic violence and attitudes of the judiciary. [262pp]
