Re: Article: Violence by Ross Robertson

Ross, I found this article helpful in thinking about the issue of violence prevention. However, I think any general discussion on violence in society needs to include the component of gender. The violence perpetrated in relationships, including physical and sexual violence, doesn't seem to fit into the categories outlined in your article. If we are trying to eliminate violence we need to think about how we can encourage equality in relationships. For women, the threat of violence comes more frequently from the men in their lives or in their communities.

Thanks,
Krista
