While rates of violent victimization have declined, women are still much more likely than men to be attacked by an intimate partner. Simultaneously, women’s involvement in the criminal justice system, as arrestees and sentenced offenders, is increasing. Criminologists are struggling to understand these patterns of offending and victimization and how they can be prevented. Composed of original contributions by many of the top scholars in criminology, these essays will help to transform our understanding of women's relation to crime.

Contributors: Jennifer L. Castro, Stephen A. Cernkovich, Sarah Curtis-Fawley, Kathleen Daly, Laura Dugan, Jill A. Dienes, Rosemary Gartner, Carole Gibbs, Peggy C. Giordano, Karen Heimer, Gwen Hunnicutt, Candace Kruttschnitt, Gary LaFree, Janet L. Lauritsen, Ross Macmillan, Bill McCarthy, Jody Miller, Christopher W.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“The overall quality of this collection is excellent.”
-Criminal Justice Review


"Relying on recent work by a virtual who's who in the study of gender and crime, this book does exactly what is needed to significantly advance our thinking about the structure of the gender-crime nexus."
-Valerie Jenness,co-author of Making Hate a Crime: From Social Movement to Law Enforcement

“Gender and Crime is an exceptionally strong collection that focuses on the deep intersection of criminological theory and gendered violence. Through multiple lenses of sociological inquiry, this volume gifts us with a wealth of new perspectives on gendered violence.”
-Jeffrey Fagan,co-editor of The Changing Borders of Juvenile Justice: Transfer of Adolescents to the Criminal Court
