Patriarchy reasserted : fathers' rights and anti-VAWA activism
Dragiewicz, M. (2008) Patriarchy reasserted : fathers' rights and anti-VAWA activism. Feminist Criminology, 3(2), pp. 121-144.
The backlash against gender-sensitive responses to women's victimization, offending, and imprisonment is inseparable from contemporary reaction against feminism and other progressive movements. The backlash against the American Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) provides a prime example of this resistance. Despite widespread support for VAWA and other policies designed to address violence against women, some constituencies object to their existence. The author investigates fathers' rights rhetoric on VAWA as an example of antifeminist backlash.
