Abstract

This article puts forward the elements of a holistic gender approach to reparations to be followed by international tribunals in cases of violence and discrimination against women, and uses them to test the reparation's jurisprudence of the Inter-American Court of Human Rights, giving particular attention to the Castro Castro Prison and the Cotton Field decisions. The article considers the significant progress made by the Court so far, as well as the major challenge that still lies ahead in making reparations gender-sensitive and delivering, although in a modest way, transformative remedies able to subvert sexual hierarchies. © 2011 by The Johns Hopkins University Press.
