Notes from the Underground: Battered Women, the State Conceptions of Accountability
G. Kristian Miccio
University of Denver Sturm College of Law
Harvard Women's Law Journal, Vol. 23, p. 133, 2000
In this article, Miccio uses the Benavidez case from San Jose, CA, in laying bare the moral paucity of the justice paradigm employed by the courts and public policy actors in addressing intimate violence against women. She critiques tort law, constitutional law and raises critical questions concerning our notions of justice and our failure to infuse care into those notions. What makes this article so interesting is the interplay between narrative and complex theoretical questions that the narratives raise. As with all of her work, Miccio takes her analysis into the practical realm - satisfying the needs of boths schoar and activist alike.
