Abstract: »In Chapter 13, Gretchen Arnold writes about the battered women and anti-rape movements, pointing to their substantial successes, but also some current criticisms of the movements. Violence against women is a pressing social problem, and Arnold's chapter describes women's important collective efforts in this area.« (Source: Holly J.
