Welcome

Genderjusticememory.com is a platform for thinking about transformative gender justice in transitional societies led by Jelke Boesten at King’s College London and Helen Scanlon at the University of Cape Town. The project brought together scholars, artists, curators and activists interested in gendered harm and postconflict justice. The group published the book Gender and Memorial Arts: from Symbolic Reparations to Protest Movement, published in the Routledge Transitional Justice Series, 2021.
