Call for papers: The Role of Structural and Interpersonal Violence in the Lives of Women

BMC Women's Health is currently accepting submissions to a thematic series entitled 'The Role of Structural and Interpersonal Violence in the Lives of Women'.

The purpose of this thematic series is to build a strong theoretical understanding of structural violence against women, and identify policy responses to address structural inequities that make women vulnerable to numerous forms of violence such as abuse, physical assaults, or criminal acts. We welcome manuscripts that span a number of disciplines and incorporate different research methodologies and theoretical lenses to understand the phenomenon of structural violence against women. Papers that draw on varying contexts in which structural violence is experienced by women, as well as their causes can also be considered.
