This book pays particular attention to multiple forms of sexual violence against women across their lifetime, and the victimisation of women throughout sexual violence literature. Implementing feminist theory and feminist thought, the manuscript focuses on the range of experiences of the women and how these women define their experiences with regards to coping, resisting, and surviving sexual violence.
