'Foreword' Violence Against Women, Ellen Pence, 2012

In this article, Ellen Pence discusses the idea of social justice for women and children who have experienced domestic violence. 

'The idea of social justice is a powerful one. It is this idea, combined with the vision of a righteous and compassionate world that has historically inspired activists to struggle for social change. For most activists, endeavoring to achieve social justice is a conscious and meaningful choice as well as a realizable goal. It is this vision that has fueled the antidomestic violence and antisexual assault movements in our country and motivated advocates to act on behalf of women and children who are violated. Although the imagination of social justice sustains advocacy, it is not always apparent what justice might actually entail.'
