Relational Caring: The Use of the Victim Impact Statement by Sexually Assaulted Women
Much remains unknown about the unique motivations, strategies, and experiences of sexually assaulted women who have completed a VIS. This article is designed to address these issues. It begins with a canvass of VIS research. It next discusses findings drawn from interviews with victims, victim services workers, and feminist advocates across Canada. It concludes with a discussion of the broader social, legal, and therapeutic implications of an ethic of care, which prompts victims to use the VIS to prioritize the harms and the needs of others.
