Violence and Gender is the first and only peer-reviewed journal focusing on the understanding, prediction, and prevention of acts of violence.

Violence and Gender is under the editorial leadership of Mary Ellen O'Toole, PhD, Senior FBI Profiler/Criminal Investigative Analyst (ret.), Forensic Behavioral Consultant, and expert in psychopathy, criminal investigative analysis, offender behavior, targeted school violence, workplace violence, and threat assessment.

“I spent my career studying the criminal violent mind,” says Dr. O’Toole, “and now gratuitous violence is at an all-time high. This violence is well-planned, lethal, and extremely callous. The offenders are nearly always male. Does gender really make a difference in the commission of violent crime? It's time for a journal to take on this question.”
