Femicide in South Africa, by Nechama Brodie
South Africa has one of the highest murder rates in the world, and a femicide rate that is more than five times the world average.In this book, Dr Nechama Brodie looks at the story of femicide in South Africa over the past forty years. She interrogates police, public health and media data, exploring the history of violence against women in an entirely new way that contextualises and challenges the state and public response to what has, in reality, been a crisis for decades.
