“Not all feminists agree about definitions and tactics, but three elements characterize the antiviolence movement: the importance of naming all forms of violence against women as illegitimate practices, the provision of services to heal and empower survivors of violence and change male behaviors, and the obligation of the state to enforce laws that both criminalize male violence and protect women and children from abuse” (Freedman 279).

This quote clearly explains the unifying importance of the antiviolence movement and how is transcends other points of contention within different activist tactics. By using a colon to emphasize the three elements, it draws attention away from any dissention and bring it to the importance of antiviolence. The words used to describe each point are succinct and powerful.
