Feminist Theory as a Resource for Restorative Justice Theory — Feminist theory and restorative justice seem opposed to one another: compared to conventional judicial conflict resolution, restorative conflict resolution presents an insufficient and dubious result for feminists, especially in cases of domestic violence. The practice has thus evoked strong opposition from feminist scholars. However, I argue in this article that feminist theory can in fact contribute to restorative justice theory and that the two have much in common. Both approaches have had difficulties being taken seriously and both have fought for credibility. I thus posit that an understanding of feminist theory can contribute to a deeper understanding of restorative justice, even in cases of domestic violence.
