This report details a two day conference on ‘gender dimensions in torture’, co-hosted by REDRESS and Amnesty International in may 2011, which brought together representatives of non-governmental organizations and academics from around the world to discuss how the legal framework on torture has and can achieve justice for women and those from marginalized groups who are the victims of deliberately inflicted harm. In doing so it looked at different gender dimensions to torture: considering how gender impacts not only the circumstances of the commission and its consequences, but also on its remedy. Their findings were shared with UN treaty body members and UN Special Rapporteurs.
