VAWnet: Special Collections

VAWnet’s Special Collections are organized lists of select resources on specific topics related to violence against women that provide contextual information to encourage critical analysis. Collections are developed by VAWnet staff and our consultants and collaborative partners at the National Resource Center on Domestic Violence, National Sexual Violence Resource Center, and Minnesota Center Against Violence and Abuse at the University of Minnesota. All collections are subjected to a peer-review process where seasoned advocates, academics, and other professionals in the field with particular expertise in the issue at hand are invited to provide input and recommend resources.

We have organized the Special Collections according to the topic areas below. Please click on the tabs to view VAWnet’s offering of collections in each area. Or see our full list of collections as a printer-friendly PDF. If for any reason you cannot find what you're searching for, please send us a materials request via our online contact form.
