This text provides a comprehensive critical introduction to the relationship between gender and crime.
In addition to offering an overview of key themes and issues, Marisa Silvestri and Chris Crowther-Dowey draw on human rights discourse to make sense of gender, crime, and criminal justice. In re-thinking the experiences of women and men as offenders, victims, and criminal justice professionals, the authors encourage a fresh approach to traditional debates about gender and crime.
