About this book

This book explores the burgeoning interest in alternative and innovative justice responses to sexual violence both within and outside the legal system. It explores the limits of criminal law for achieving 'rape justice' and highlights possibilities for expanding how we think about justice in the aftermath of sexual violence.

Reviews

'This book presents a startling challenge to traditional thinking about what constitutes a just response to rape. It is a must read by jurists and feminist advocates alike for the provocative questions raised about moving beyond a one form of justice, disengagement from the politics of punishment, the context of sexual violence, and what justice means to victims and communities. Especially appealing is the inclusion of the broad range of settings where rape occurs and the solid suggestions to move us toward nuanced concepts of rape justice.' - Mary P. Koss, Regents' Professor, Public Health, University of Arizona, USA

'This book is essential reading for scholars, students, policy makers, and practitioners seeking innovative responses to sexual violence that move beyond the limited realm of orthodox legal approaches. Each chapter in this cutting-edge anthology provides a wealth of thought-provoking and useful information about one of the most significant threats to women's health and well-being. Undoubtedly, this book will stimulate much debate and discussion and hopefully lead to progressive means of social control guided by a rich gendered understanding of societal reactions to sexual violence.' - Walter S. DeKeseredy, Anna Deane Carlson Endowed Chair of Social Sciences, and Director of the Research Center on Violence, and Professor of Sociology, West Virginia University, USA
