Next Time, She'll Be Dead by Ann Jones"Whether you're an individual woman looking for help or a reader looking for the truth about the thousands of women who are battered by the men they live with, Next Time, She'll Be Dead is the one book you should read." --Gloria Steinem At least 1 in 4 women will be abused during her lifetime--that is 25% of our mothers, daughters, sisters, partners, and friends. Thousands will be killed. As author Ann Jones observes, despite its devastation battering is regarded not as a serious crime, but instead as an inevitable "problem" blandly labeled "domestic violence." Stories of household assaults and murders are all over the news, but the blame is usually pinned on the woman who is said to have either provoked the attack or failed to "leave." In this groundbreaking book, Jones points instead to the many factors in society that promote, trivialize, and perpetuate brutality against women: from popular psychology, academic "expertise," mass media, and pop culture, to the criminal justice system and the law itself. Delving deep into the history, legality, and personal politics of male violence against wives and girlfriends, Next Time, She'll Be Dead fearlessly reframes the issue. This critically acclaimed masterwork offers productive ways of thinking and speaking about battering and explains what must be done to stop it.
