Gendered Justice offers an innovative way of understanding a major social problem that is endemic to American society. Experts in the field and students will find the authors' contribution to be an important resource.
*Walter S. DeKeseredy, University of Ontario Institute of Technology; co-author of Dangerous Exits: Escaping Abusive Relationships in Rural America*

Gendered Justice brings a fresh and critical analysis to the discussion of gender based violence, especially intimate partner violence. Moving beyond the traditional critique of the criminal justice system, Garcia and McManimon examine the response of law enforcement, including an enlightening discussion of orders of protection, the shelter movement, and progressive approaches to addressing domestic violence, including family violence courts and restorative justice programs. Their focus on the response to gender based violence is unique and fills an important niche for both scholars and students of gendered violence.
