Rape justice

Beyond the criminal law

Abstract

This book explores the burgeoning interest in alternative and innovative justice responses to sexual violence both within and outside the legal system. While much existing work on sexual violence has focused foremost on securing justice through criminal law, the contributors to this volume more broadly consider the multiple and diverse forms that justice can take in response to sexual violence. Rape justice responds to the arguments of scholars, activists and practitioners about the continued silence surrounding sexual violence in public discourse, the failure of legal courts to recognise and respond to rape, and the stigma and shame that continues to be directed at victim-survivors. Importantly, each chapter explores the limits of criminal law for achieving rape justice and highlights possibilities for expanding how we conceptualise justice in the aftermath of sexual violence.
