Exploring The Continuum: Sexualized Violence by Men And Male Youth Against Women And Girls

  • Aysan Sev'er Univeristy of Toronto

Abstract

In this paper, the continuum of violence against women is explored through numerous news media reports. After a review of social learning, cultural violence and feminist theories on violence against women, the paper concentrates on the climate of misogyny and increased risk of violence, as manifested in the rise in sexual harassment, terrorism in relation to abortion seekers and providers, and intimate femicide, in both the United States and Canada.
