About Miriam

Gleckman-Krut's research focuses on why institutions fail to prevent sexual violence. She offers a sociological lens to sexual violence prevention (e.g. what community or institutional factors contribute to the issue's longstanding prevalence?), and joins efforts to define a new sociological subfield in sexual violence.



"Constructing 'Corrective Rape' for South Africa: An Evaluation of a Global Media Discourse around Sexual Violence in South Africa" (with AJ Lee). Harvard Kennedy School LGBTQ Policy Journal (2014).

Integrates social scientific scholarship on sexual violence – particularly that which employs an intersectional perspective– with the goal of more fully integrating sexual violence into the sociological study of inequality.
