by Patrizia Romito (translation by Janet Eastwood)
Download PDF
This book is born of a contradiction: on the one hand, there has been a genuine advance in the awareness of male violence and actions to oppose it. On the other, male violence against women persists. So too does its denial, and the counter-attack against those who seek to expose it.
