Gender Justice by Inclusion: How the women's movement can provide redress
This paper discusses the options of the (local, global) women's movement to offer justice to women victims who have a legitimate claim to (transitional) justice.
In 2003, the mass rape of German women in Berlin at the end of World War II finally found public attention. After 60 years of silence, a few victims recounted their experience. This paper describes how the feminist NGO Medica mondiale e.V. tried then and tries till today to incorporate the victims of 1945 into feminist history, and how it attempts to provide justice by listening to their stories. The value of providing space and of appreciating private memories for a gender concept of transitional justice is assessed, while simultanously outlining its problems. The paper discusses how transitional justice can be integrated as a part of the women’s movement; and if any findings might be of interest to Taiwan. Taiwanese former Japanese "comfort women" and the ererba widows and their inclusion in the Taiwanese women's movement history will be discussed.
