Shades of Grey - Domestic and Sexual Violence Against Women investigates the 'hidden gender' of so-called neutral or objective legal principles that structure the law addressing violence against women. Drawing upon a range of material - from Australia and England/Wales but also from the US, Canada and European countries - the book contextualizes and critiques relevant legislation, case law, and secondary studies.

It also compares policy responses; making recommendationsfor best practice models of policy-making and law reform. Aiming to help improve government, community and legal responses to women who experience violence, Shades of Grey - Domestsic and Sexual Violence Against Women will assist law-makers, academics, policy-makers and a wider audience in understanding the complexities of violence against women, as well as the potential and the limits of law in this area.
