Jenniffer Olenewa

Jenniffer's doctoral research offers a feminist genealogy of the institutional practices and responses to women victim-offenders charged with domestic assault in the first Domestic Violence Courts in various jurisdictions across Ontario. This historical account will trace how the criminal justice system came to be seen by many as a logical component of the violence against women movement and its consequences on women criminalized for domestic violence.
