Legal remedies for crimes of gendered violence that are more effective, expansive,
creative, victim-centred, and victim-sensitive are urgently needed. The author
argues that restorative justice is one promising approach which warrants criticai
engagement and, more importantly, requires input from feminists in their efforts
to end violence against women. The paper condudes with some key principles
and recommended directions for further engagement between feminists and
proponets of restorative justice in the development of approaches to the harms
of gendered vioience. (author’s abstract)
