The continued importance of a feminist analysis: Making gendered inequalities visible through a critique of Howard government policy on domestic violence
Morley, Christine & MacFarlane, Selma (2008) The continued importance of a feminist analysis: Making gendered inequalities visible through a critique of Howard government policy on domestic violence. Just Policy: A Journal of Australian Social Policy, 47, pp. 31-38.
This paper argues that feminist analyses are crucial in any critical analysis of social policy. Specifically, this paper argues that the Howard government's policy responses to the issue of family violence have reflected a renewed attack on previous gains made by women, and exemplify a neo-liberal, neo-conservative approach to social policy that demands a critical feminist analysis.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
