"Britton’s sobering book offers an incisive, comprehensive view of what works and what doesn’t work in South African efforts to stop gender-based violence. Not only does this book document practical ways to end gender-based violence, but it also advances transnational feminist research on the subject. This is a must-read for anyone who cares about eliminating gender-based violence." Ashley Currier, author of Out in Africa: LGBT organizing in Namibia and South Africa

"A very important book. The contribution lies in its thorough empirical research with communities, stakeholders, feminist activists, the places where violence takes place, and the police. This is the first research that is so encompassing, giving us a view of gender-based violence from the ground up." Amanda Gouws, co-editor of Gender and Multiculturalism: North-South perspectives
