April 18, 2008 at 10:38 AM
Today’s Law Librarian Blog has links to the World Health Organization’s Multi-country Study on Women’s Health and Domestic Violence against Women and to a Congressional Research Service report entitled International Violence against Women: U.S. Response and Policy Issues. The WHO report is based on interviews with more than 24,000 women in ten countries: Bangladesh, Brazil, Ethiopia, Japan, Peru, Namibia, Samoa, Serbia and Montenegro, Thailand and the United Republic of Tanzania. The CRS report contains information about U.S. government efforts to reduce global violence against women. Appendices to the CRS report include lists of additional print and electronic resources; U.S. agencies that address global violence against women; United Nations efforts to reduce violence against women; and relevant legislation pending in the 110th Congress.
