Overview

An insight into the long-standing struggle of women in criminal justice occupations to move beyond the barriers of gender segregation is provided in this book.

The authors take a close look at the organization of justice occupations along gender lines and in doing so discuss issues such as the historical roles of women in the criminal justice system; the expansion of women's assignments and contributions in the past 20 years; the barriers that women in justice occupations have encountered at an interpersonal, organizational, occupational and societal level; the performance of women in more responsible and onerous positions, and their response to workplace barriers; and the effect of women on the criminal justice system, victims, offenders, co-workers, and the public.
