This text covers women and the criminal justice system with a focus on three major areas: (1) female offenders and their treatment by the criminal justice system; (2) female victims of crime; and (3) female employees of the agencies of the criminal justice system. This is the only text to emphasize all three aspects.
This study of women as offenders, victims, and workers in the criminal justice system focuses on descriptions of the lives and experiences of real women. Belknap (criminology, University of Colorado, Boulder) considers and critiques the treatment that the victims of sexual abuse and domestic violence receive, the hostile environments that female police officers and prison guards report, and the inhumane conditions endured by female prisoners. From both political and historical perspectives, Belknap explores how gender and gender differences intertwine with race, racism, class, and sexuality distinctions. Annotation c.
