Editorial Reviews

Susan Caringella-MacDonald
Women and Justice presents a wide-ranging assortment of scholarly work that provides perspective on the problems that different societies and 'justice' systems pose for women. The commonalities of violence and discrimination against women emerge poignantly from this collection of research from countries separated by geography, history and culture. One of the most important contributions of this anthology is that the authors do not stop at their descriptions of policies and practices that they detail in the different international contexts, but go forward to recommend directions for redressing the issues they describe.
