Women, Gender, and Crime : Core Concepts Paperback / softback

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.
