    Alcohol, drugs and family violence: A question of framing and boundary markers

Alcohol, drugs and family violence: A question of framing and boundary markers

by Sophie Yates

Family violence cuts across many different service sectors — including police, family violence agencies, alcohol and other drugs (AOD), mental health, and many more — and these sectors don’t always agree on what the problem is and what to do about it. Many of these sectors were involved in giving evidence before a recent Royal Commission into […]

We need better responses to sexual harassment on public transportation

by Aiko Holvikivi

We know sexual harassment is rife on London’s public transportation system. I doubt you could find one Londoner who has not experienced, witnessed, or heard a first-hand account of it. The Everyday Sexism Project has famously documented such violations for years. The authorities know it too: they have launched initiatives in recent years, including Project Guardian and the […]

Let’s take a look at the facts. A 2007 study […]

Unpacking Consent: An interdisciplinary bibliography

by Harriet Gray 

Debates around sexual violence often place consent – and, in particular, the lack of it – at the heart of their definitions. In popular discourse as well as in legal judgements, consent is the hinge around which a particular act is understood as ‘sex’ or, alternatively, as ‘violence.’ However, despite the simplicity and rigidity often attributed to […]

    Marine Le Pen’s Woman Card: The re-alignment of female voters in a traditionally masculine game

Marine Le Pen’s Woman Card: The re-alignment of female voters in a traditionally masculine game

by Sjifra de Leeuw

The nation and by extent nationalist politics is traditionally rendered a male game. In the most recent French presidential race this status quo has been challenged by a female contender, namely Marine Le Pen. In this post I ask what role Marine Le Pen’s gender played in the mobilisation of voters and argue that Le Pen’s electoral success […]

A victory for Labour’s left-wing women

by Rosanna Hutchings

Labour’s left-wing women have long been side-lined by the party and by the media. Having refused to engage with the Blairite agenda of the Labour Party from the end of the 1990s, these women received little media attention. This is despite having spearheaded a number of notable campaigns, for example, the London Schools and the Black Child initiative […]
