Violence against women is one of the most obvious ways in which relationships between women and men are broken and it is here that reconciliation is often required. Violence against women is not always expressed in the brutal forms, as in the testimonies to the TRC in South Africa - the everyday experiences of women can be more subtle, more difficult to deal with, more hidden and therefore so easy to dismiss as irrelevant. We need new theological and political categories so that we as human beings can live in harmony with each other.
