Reviews

Women s Review of Books"" Domestic Violence Report" Contemporary Sociology" "Equality with a Vengeance, by Molly Dragiewicz, will be most interesting to domestic violence prevention professionals and others looking for a cogent analysis of the attacks on anti-violence legislation by so-called men's rights groups. [Dragiewicz argues that] considering gender in any analysis of violence is not radical but essential, and that refusing to do so is politically motivated."-- "Women's Review of Books" "Dragiewicz has provided us with a treasure in its analysis of the motivations of men's and fathers' rights (FR) programs, as well as their claims and how to refute many of their arguments. She writes both as a scholar and as an advocate of anti-violence, and has probably set herself up to be an expert witness in future lawsuits brought by FR groups. But even if she does not testify, her book will surely be used to counter their suits. Her book, Equality With a Vengeance: Men's Rights Groups, Battered Women, and a Feminist Backlash, is one that no state coalition library should be without. Ideally, every DV program should have a copy in the event it is sued by MR or FR groups."-- "Domestic Violence Report" "The book has great value as a case study of antifeminist backlash. When Dragiewicz argues that what might seem at first glance to be isolated backlash from small fringe groups actually reflects larger anti-feminist discourses that are alive and well today, we are reminded of the importance and value of doing such close-up case studies. . . . Clearly, the discursive political battle that Dragiewicz describes continues, and this book is a welcome contribution to clear thinking on the issue."-- "Contemporary Sociology" The book has great value as a case study of antifeminist backlash.
