Description : Scholarship in criminology over the last few decades has often left little room for research and theory on how female offenders are perceived and handled in the criminal justice system. In truth, one out of every four juveniles arrested is female and the population of women in prison has tripled in the past decade. Co-authored by Meda Chesney-Lind, one of the pioneers in the development of the feminist theoretical perspective in criminology, the subject matter of The Female Offender: Girls, Women and Crime, Third Edition redresses the balance by providing critical insight into these issues. In an engaging style, authors Meda Chesney-Lind and Lisa Pasko explore gender and cultural factors in women's lives that often precede criminal behavior and address the question of whether female offenders are more violent today than in the past. The authors provide a revealing look at how public discomfort with the idea of women as criminals significantly impacts the treatment received by this offender population.

Description : The known or suspected dimensions of officially acted-upon involvement of women and girls in crime and delinquency should be reviewed, in order to sense whether the available information offers guidelines for a realistic policy in handling the female offender throughout the length and breadth of the legal and correctional process. The outstanding research studies on the female offender, although extremely scarce, should also be reviewed to see whether they contain any guidelines for policy. In developing a rationale for effective, justifiable handling of the officially acted-upon female offender, it is important to develop a totally integrated policy all the way along the line of the leg-correction procedures from arrest to parole, which policy is just not concentrated on the terminal phases of these procedures, such as probation, institutionalization, and release.
