The development of law as a response to violence has long been important. Yet this generates further troubles. Responses to violence require analyses of intersecting inequalities, such as gender, immigration status, ethnicity/race, and age, with such intersections becoming the focus of debate for policy making in the context of the Domestic Abuse Bill, now in its final stages of progress.
The many attempts at amendment have raised important questions including the implications of legislative changes for domestic violence and abuse. What are the policy and theoretical issues at stake? How are concepts of ‘gender’ and ‘abuse’ or ‘violence’ approached? What does the recourse to law as a strategy for responding to domestic violence and abuse achieve? And what protections does this legislative change provide for migrant and minoritized women?
