Inhalt: Awareness of violence against women has never been greater, yet rates of such violence persist at jaw-dropping levels. In Every 90 Seconds, Dr. Anne P. DePrince argues that to end violence against women, we must fundamentally redefine how we engage with the problem—starting by abandoning the idea that awareness is enough to cause change or that such acts are someone else’s problem. Instead, she argues that we must come to see that we share a common interest in ending violence against women, which diminishes individuals and communities. DePrince traces the links between violence against women and the most important public health and economic issues of our time, including healthcare, education, and legal system reform as well as gun control and immigration. Drawing on research from her own work as well as across disciplines, DePrince explains how violence against women directly and daily affects each of us. In a call to action, the author offers new ways to work together to restore and ensure dignity, fairness, opportunity, and safety for women, girls, and our communities. The book is organized around the connections between violence against women and challenges facing the United States in terms of healthcare (Chapter 1), gun violence (Chapter 2), education access and success (Chapter 3), immigration policy (Chapter 4), economic justice (Chapter 5), and legal system reform (Chapter 6).
