Description : Why are there pronounced gender differences in rates of criminal victimization? Does gender influence the response of the criminal justice system and other parts of the community to offenders and to crime victims? What part does gender play in the etiology of illegal activities committed by both males and females? Understanding Gender, Crime, and Justice takes a contemporary look at such questions and considers areas that are often neglected in other books on gender, crime, and justice.

Description : This book provides a lucid and highly acclaimed introduction to gender issues in crime and criminal justice, central to any understanding of crime and criminal justice policy and practice. This second edition has been updated to take full account of recent developments, particularly in the areas of policing, crime prevention, restorative justice and legislation relating to sexual offences and the nature and impact of crime on women − in particular the Sexual Offences Act 2003. Gender, Crime and Criminal Justice is divided into three main sections. The first considers different ways of theorising about gender and the relative impact of this on thinking about crime and criminal victimisation; the second considers some of the evidence in relation to people's gendered experiences of crime and criminal victimisation; the third considers how those working within the criminal justice system, and the policies that are put in place, work to sustain or change those experiences of crime and criminal victimisation in relation to gender.

Description : At the end of the twentieth century a step-change in thinking about the offending behaviour of women began to impact on policy-makers concerned with the treatment of female offenders. A growing number of nations, states and organisations both national and supra-national in nature began to acknowledge that existing criminal justice and especially penal practices had not been sufficiently attentive to women’s needs and had discriminated against women as a result. The concept of ‘gender-responsive justice’ – an orientation to working with women and girls based around a consideration of the special needs of women as prisoners and their particular pathways to offending – has been developed as a result. This book explores the development of this concept, the theories which have informed it, policy arenas in which gender-responsive justice has been attempted and the practices of gender-responsive justice which have subsequently emerged. This book takes a global perspective as it outlines the different international and national arenas within which gender-responsive justice gained favour and considers what has been learned from this novel and feminist-inspired approach. Gender-responsive justice has not been without its critics, however, and this book also examines the different arguments which have been used to attack or critique the concept from varied perspectives. This book lays down a clear theoretical framework for understanding gender-responsive justice and will be useful in assessing current and future policy-making in this area.

Description : The editors, Rosemary Gartner and Bill McCarthy, have assembled a diverse cast of criminologists, historians, legal scholars, psychologists, and sociologists from a number of countries to discuss key concepts and debates central to the field. The Handbook includes examinations of the historical and contemporary patterns of women's and men's involvement in crime; as well as biological, psychological, and social science perspectives on gender, sex, and criminal activity. Several essays discuss the ways in which sex and gender influence legal and popular reactions to crime. An important theme throughout The Handbook is the intersection of sex and gender with ethnicity, class, age, peer groups, and community as influences on crime and justice. Individual chapters investigate both conventional topics - such as domestic abuse and sexual violence - and topics that have only recently drawn the attention of scholars - such as human trafficking, honor killing, gender violence during war, state rape, and genocide.

Description : Criminological research has historically been based on the study of men, boys and crime. As a result, the criminal justice system's development of policies, programs, and treatment regimes was based on the male offender. It was not until the 1970s that some criminologists began to draw attention to the neglect of gender in the study of crime, but today, the study of gender and crime is burgeoning within criminology and includes a vast literature. The Routledge International Handbook of Crime and Gender Studies is a collection of original, cutting-edge, multidisciplinary essays which provide a thorough overview of the history and development of research on gender and crime, covering topics based around: theoretical and methodological approaches gender and victimization gender and offending gendered work in the criminal justice system future directions in gender and crime research. Alongside these essays are boxes which highlight particularly innovative ideas or controversial topics – such as cybercrime, restorative justice, campus crime, and media depictions. A second set of boxes features leading gender and crime researchers who reflect on what sparked their interest in the subject. This engaging and thoughtful collection will be invaluable for students and scholars of criminology, sociology, psychology, public health, social work, cultural studies, media studies, economics and political science.

Description : This book compiles research on female crime and delinquency in Portugal in order to critically and reflectively explore interdisciplinary views on the link between gender, crime and delinquency. Contributions are organized into two main parts, with Part I dedicated to the relationship between women and crime, and Part II focused on female juvenile delinquency. Through the exploration of girls’ and women’s relationships with delinquency and crime, as well as with the justice system, this original and compelling collection highlights the heterogeneity of girls’ and women's experiences, whilst also underlining the convergences and divergences between them. Ultimately, Gomes and Duarte argue that understanding how women and girls explain their offending behaviours and how they relate to the criminal justice system is of the utmost importance for reforming social and legal policies. As such, this book will be of value not only for students, researchers and professionals of the social, behavioural and criminal sciences, but also for policy-makers seeking to provide greater efficiency in preventing crime and delinquency.

Description : The anthology "Race, Gender, and Criminal Justice: Equality & Justice for All?," examines the ways in which race, ethnicity, class, and gender impact offenders as they move through the criminal justice system, and integrate back into the community. While many books in the field address race or gender in the criminal justice system, this book offers a detailed exploration of both. The book also looks at the unintended consequences of criminal justice policies on women and minorities, and considers what, if anything, is being done to address disparities. Written in an accessible manner, the book is divided into five main sections: - Understanding Race and Gender - The Police - The Courts - Corrections - Issues of Re-entry and Disenfranchisement The individual chapters of the book cover topics that are of high interest to students in the fields of Sociology and Criminology, including the difference between race and ethnicity, racial profiling, the role of specialized courts, prosecutorial discretion, and recidivism. Issues such as the death penalty, imprisonment rates, and drug policy are examined from both domestic and international perspectives. Each chapter includes information on accessing relevant YouTube videos, websites, non-profits, government agencies, and journal articles, giving students the opportunity for additional examination. There are also critical thinking questions to encourage class discussions. "Race, Gender, and Criminal Justice: Equality & Justice for All? " can be used in both lower and upper-division courses in Criminal Justice, Criminology, and Sociology. It is also an excellent supplementary text for courses in the areas of Political Science, Women's Studies, and Race/Black Studies. Adopting professors will receive PowerPoint slides to assist with lectures and test questions. Danielle McDonald received her Ph.D. in Criminology from Indiana University of Pennsylvania in 2006. Currently, Dr. McDonald is an assistant professor of criminal justice at Northern Kentucky University.

Description : The Gender of Crime introduces students to how gender shapes our understanding of every aspect of crime. Moving beyond criminological theories and research that have often neglected gender, this dynamic and provocative book shows that gender is central to the definition, prosecution, and sentencing of crimes, that it shapes how victimization is experienced and understood, and that it structures the institutions of the criminal justice system and the experiences of workers within that system. Discussing the intersections of race, class, gender, and sexuality with crime and punishment, this book demonstrates that crime, victimization, and crime control are never generic—they are instead produced and experienced by gendered (and race, and classed, and sexualized) actors within contexts of social inequality. This book highlights key concepts for students and encourages them to think critically through a range of compelling real-life examples, from school violence to corporate crime. The Gender of Crime provides essential reading for students of gender, criminology, and criminal justice alike.

Description : Crimes in England in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries were both committed and judged differently, depending on whether the culprit was male or female. Based on a wide range of primary material, this book follows the journeys of men and women implicated in the capital crimes of shoplifting, pickpocketing and distributing forged banknotes, through their trials and on to death, transportation, imprisonment or even to complete freedom. This study of the English judicial system in London provides a detailed view of its complex workings, with particular attention to the role, and apparently more lenient treatment, of women. The evidence presented also sheds light on the complex decision-making policies of a criminal justice administration burdened by the weight of increasing criminal business. DEIRDRE PALK is an independent researcher in eighteenth and nineteenth-century social and administrative history.

Illustrated with case studies throughout, the book introduces major themes, such as the social construction of gender and victimology, as well as topics such as the portrayal of intimate partner violence in the media and how it shapes our understanding of violence.

Description : Women, Gender, and Crime: Core Concepts provides you with a complete and concise view into the intersection of gender and the criminal justice system. Author Stacy L. Mallicoat explores core topics on women as victims, offenders, and criminal justice professionals as they interact with various areas of the criminal justice system. She investigates relevant subjects that are not found in many traditional texts, including women who work as victim advocates and international issues of crime and justice relating to gender. Key Features: This text discusses women and victimization prior to covering women as offenders, because victimization is often a precursor to offending. Case Studies present compelling examples that connect concepts to real-life occurrences to reinforce learning and cover key issues, such as, sexual victimization in the military, stalking on college campuses, financial challenges for incarcerated women, pregnancy and policing, and self-care for victim advocates. Coverage of critical topics introduce you to important issues such as gender representation in criminal justice academia, multiple marginalities and LGBT populations, cyberstalking, labor trafficking, and challenges faced by women as criminal justice practitioners. Statistics, graphs, and tables demonstrate the most recent trends in the field to give students an accurate picture of the criminal justice system today.

Description : Gender, Crime, and Justice: Critical and Feminist Perspectives provides feminist and critical perspectives on crime, justice, and human rights. The readings survey gender socialization as it pertains to criminality. They examine inequality within the patriarchal system with the primary focus on the subjugation and oppression of the gendered body. The anthology introduces students to concepts associated with gender, ranging from equality to violence, by engaging them in in-depth examinations of crimes of sex and the discourse on sexual autonomy. The reader also examines the socialization of boys and girls, as well as explores various ways gender affects women and men in a society that values heteronormative masculinity. Furthermore, it takes a conceptual approach by addressing topics such as a gendered view of violence, prostitution as a gendered crime, and traditional gender attitudes towards violence against women. The second edition features new readings on sexual health and reproductive rights; human trafficking as a nexus of exploitation; violence in LGBTQ families; and the interplay of masculinity, crime, and criminal justice. Gender, Crime, and Justice is well suited to classes in gender, women's studies, criminal justice, and sociology.

Description : Questions about gender, justice and crime are constantly in the public arena, whether they focus on young women getting drunk or taking drugs, or the rising numbers of women going to prison or committing violent crimes, or reports of macho behaviour on the part of men in the military, law enforcement or professional sport. This book provides a key text for students seeking to understand feminist and gendered perspectives on criminology and criminal justice, bringing together the most innovative research and work which has taken the study of the relationship between gender and justice into the twenty-first century. The book addresses many of the issues of concern to the established feminist agenda (such as the gender gap, equity in the criminal justice system, penal regimes and their impact on women), but also shows the ways in which these themes have been extended, reinterpreted and answered in new and distinctive ways. Organised into sections on gender and offending behaviour, gender and the criminal justice system, and new concepts and approaches, Gender and Justice: new concepts and approaches will be essential reading for students taking courses in criminology and criminal justice, and anybody else wishing to understand the complex and changing relationship between gender and justice.
