If the existing legislative reform has had limited success in balancing the scales of justice for those who have been raped, then Easteal considers what else can be done to facilitate more effective change. Looking at what needs to accompany reform of the letter of the law, she points to the inequality of the sexes that pervades the private and public realms of the culture and the need for that to change beyond mere tokenism, in order to correlate with real judicial accountability, gender neutralising of concepts and attitudinal modification.
