Women and Violence is a broad topic that could include wife abuse (domestic violence, uroxicide, abused wives), rape, female genital mutilation, sex trafficking, and many more subtopics.  Searching for Women AND Violence AND “Public Health” in the following databases should get you started if you are looking for the public health perspective on this topic:

If these articles are too specific you may want to search SOPHIA, the library catalog, for books on violence and women.  We recommend the following search terms:

  • Women and crimes against
  • Violence against women
  • Wife abuse or abused wives or uroxicide
  • Rape
  • Sexual harassment of women
  • Sex trafficking

If you need help, please stop by the reference desk or send an email to library@agnesscott.edu .
