Chapter 1 introduces the reader to the problem of violence against women identified by women's movements, states, and international organizations. It explores prevailing definitions of violence against women, including the increasingly common term gender-based violence, and introduces the political economy approach of this book, which seeks to understand the broader context of violence and insecurity experienced by many women. The chapter also reviews the available assessments and data on the prevalence of violence against women and the many methodological and political challenges with measuring this violence globally.
