Overview

Crime Control and Women reveals the current limitations of criminal justice policies that are oblivious to the impact they exert on citizens who vary by gender, race and/or social class. Feminist in perspective, the contributors to this volume share a common vision of hope that social change will result from social control and punishment that is just and human, with commitments to prevention, education, and treatment.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Offers feminist perspectives on the tough-on-crime policies instituted during the 1990s and their impact on women and children. Germinated over coffee at an American Society of Criminology conference in Boston, the collection of ten essays look at how cuts from social services to pay for crime control can disproportionately affect women, how women incur increased responsibility for the family while men serve longer sentences, how governments often victimize women as third parties when they are associated with criminals, and other aspects rarely discussed on the corporate media. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
