Violence against Women: Implications for the Workplace pp. 97-116 $100.00
Authors:  (Judith G. Myers and Elizabeth Moran Fitzgerald)
Abstract:
Violence against women is a significant public health problem in virtually all countries, cultures, religious, ethnic, racial groups and social classes. Intimate partner violence (IPV) is the most prevalent form of violence against women. This chapter is based upon a socio-political perspective, from which IPV is viewed as a reflection of deeply embedded issues of gender and power relations. It is designed as a basic guide for policy-makers, educators, business and community leaders across the spectrum of public and private organizations. It offers a brief discussion socio-cultural factors associated with violence against women; and an overview of the epidemiology and dynamics of IPV using the Duluth model of power and control. It pragmatically offers recommendations as specific as what to say and do when intimate partner violence is disclosed in the workplace. Specific guidelines for development of policies and a work environment that will assist victims and also protect institutions and businesses from financial liability are included. A case study is used to illustrate the dynamics of IPV and the recommended practices and policies. A variety of resources are provided to assist organizations and businesses develop collaborative partnerships with local, national and international groups committed to prevention and elimination of violence against women.
