Ep. 48
Listen. We all know there's a problem with the way the legal system handles sexual assault cases. Anyone who has been through it or has heard about or read about a survivor's experience knows how horrible and retraumatizing the process can be. But what if there was a different way. A more human way. That's where restorative justice comes in.My guest on this episode is Marlee Liss, a sensuality coach and an advocate for restorative justice. Marlee is a survivor of sexual assault and was the first person in Canada and the U.S. to have a restorative justice resolution to her sexual assault case within the legal system. It is a fascinating story of her advocating for her needs after assault and getting to look her assailant in the eye and say and hear the things she needed to say and hear to heal. We also address some beliefs and misunderstandings around restorative justice.Restorative Justice! What do we know? Do We Know Things?
