Women & Criminal Justice


Publisher: Haworth Press

Women & Criminal Justice is devoted specifically to interdisciplinary and
international scholarly research and criminal justice practice dealing with
all areas of women and criminal justice. It provides both scholars and
practitioners with a single forum devoted to this critical specialty area in
the fields of both criminal justice and women's studies.

The journal is refereed and features original research articles from
academicians and professionals in the field that reflect its
interdisciplinary and international focus, such as:

* cross-cultural studies;
* historical studies;
* gender studies;
* dispute resolution and women;
* women and the law;
* women in crime and punishment literature;
* women as victims of rape, incest, battering, and sexual harassment;
* implications of legally mandated change for professionals, victims, and
* juvenile females in the criminal justice system;
* women in criminal justice professions, including academia;
* incarcerated women (legal rights, programs, pregnancy, AIDS, children of
incarcerated women, aged and infirm, women on death row)

Women & Criminal Justice periodically presents commentaries where authors
exchange ideas and discuss methodological issues and present reports of
ongoing research and research findings. Book reviews that focus on
significant issues are published periodically as well. Special thematic
issues have covered such topics as the criminalization of a woman's body and
women and domestic violence.
