Annually, approximately 66,000 women are violently killed in countries around the world. While historically these crimes were grouped into the general category of homicide, femicide, the murder of women because of their gender, is now being recognized as a unique issue and a hate crime. However, some assert that the fact that 80 percent of murder victims are male suggests that the issue of femicide is being blown out of proportion. This volume explores the forms femicide takes around the world and potential means of combatting it, and discusses the varying perspectives on the usefulness of its categorization.

Violence against women is a violation of women's human rights and a priority public health issue. It is endemic worldwide. While much has been written about it in industrialized societies, there has been relatively little attention given to such violence in Asian societies. This book addresses the structural and interpersonal violences to which women are subject, both under conditions of conflict and disruption, and where civil society is relatively ordered. It explores sexual violence and coercion, domestic violence, and violence within the broader community and the state, avoiding sensationalised accounts of so-called cultural' practices in favour of nuanced explorations of violences as experienced in Cambodia, Thailand, Burma, Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Bangladesh, and India.
