AIMING FOR JUSTICE ………………… 14
The legal system has failed rape victims and
done little to respond to criticism of its biases.
Feminist legal experts, including Elaine
Craig, author of Putting Trials on Trial: Sexual
Assault and the Failure of the Legal Profession,
are shining light on ways to facilitate greater
justice for sexual assault survivors.
by Michele Landsberg
THE ECOLOGY OF GRIEF ………………. 20
When poet Nikki Reimer’s brother died
suddenly in 2012, she felt like a collection of

“Trying to pull the molecules of the grief body
back into solid form in order to endure the
minutiae of a day and speak a relatable and
believable person-language” was near impossible.
by Tara-Michelle Ziniuk
