Jacqueline Rose and Jude Kelly: On Violence and On Violence Against Women

Throughout her career and across her many books Jacqueline Rose has been teasing out the political implications of violence, and in particular the way it concerns and interacts with the social constructions of gender. In her latest passionate, polemical work On Violence and On Violence Against Women (Faber) she confronts the issue head on, taking in trans rights, the sexual harassment of migrant women, the trial of Oscar Pistorius and the writings of Hisham Matar and Han Kang.

Rose is in conversation with Jude Kelly, Founder and Director of The WOW Foundation.
