Ruth M. Mann (PhD, 1996 University of Toronto)

Ruth Mann is Associate Professor in the Department of Sociology, Anthropology and Criminology at the University of Windsor in Canada. She is author of Who Owns Domestic Abuse (University of Toronto Press) and numerous articles on the politics and practice of domestic violence and youth justice policy making and intervention. Her work on domestic violence, supported by the Health Research Centre for the Study of Violence Against Women at the University of Windsor, addresses tensions between feminism and men's rights and their impacts on family law and domestic violence policy in Canada and globally. Her work on youth justice builds on her SSHRC-funded research on youth violence and youth violence intervention under Canada's 2002 enacted (and 2012 amended) Youth Criminal Justice Act.
