In 2008 an issue Bindel had campaigned on for over a decade became the focus of government legislation.Since the death of Emma Humphreys in 1998, Bindel had sought to have a law changed that protected men and penalised women.If men murdered a partner in the heat of the moment, an appeal to provocation was admissible in mitigation.

Bindel's campaign sought to resist the mitigation men could appeal to when partners were murdered, and allow the sustained violence to which women could be subjected to act as a mitigating factor if they murdered their partner.

Harriet Harman, Minister for Women and Equality, was of a similar mind on this issue, and legislation was proposed that would change the law to this effect.

Bindel's activism is reflected in her contribution to research and writing on feminist issues, violence against women, and prostitution.

is an English writer, feminist, and co-founder of the law-reform group Justice for Women, which opposes violence against women and helps women who have been prosecuted for killing violent male partners.

She is the author of Straight Expectations (2014) and co-author, with Harriet Wistrich, of The Map of My Life: The Story of Emma Humphreys (2003).

Bindel is a visiting researcher at Lincoln University and former assistant director of the Research Centre on Violence, Abuse and Gender Relations at Leeds Metropolitan University.

While focusing on male violence against women, Bindel also writes about gender inequality in general, as well as stalking, religious fundamentalism, lesbian rights, opposition to the sex industry and human trafficking.

Bindel cites Peter Sutcliffe, the Yorkshire Ripper, for her decision to campaign against sexual violence.

Sutcliffe was convicted in 1981 of murdering 13 women in the period 1975–1980, when Bindel was a teenager in Leeds.

She wrote: "I was angry, like many others, that the police only really seemed to step up the investigation when the first 'non-prostitute' was killed." She was also angered by the police's advice that women stay indoors, although many had jobs that required them to be out after dark.

Bindel took part in feminist protests against the killings, including flyering mock-up police notices for men to stay off the streets for the safety of women.
