    The anthology Gender, Crime, and Justice: Critical and Feminist Perspectives provides feminist and critical perspectives on crime, justice, and human rights. The readings survey gender socialization as it pertains to criminality. They examine inequality within the patriarchal system with the primary focus on the subjugation and oppression of the gendered body.

    Gender, Crime, and Justice introduces students to concepts associated with gender ranging from equality to violence. It engages them in in-depth examinations of crimes of sex and the discourse on sexual autonomy. As effective studies of gender must be inclusive, the reader examines the socialization of both boys and girls and explores various ways gender affects women and men in a society that values heteronormative masculinity.

    Rather than immersing the reader in statistics, the book takes a conceptual approach by addressing topics such as a gendered view of violence, prostitution as a gendered crime, and traditional gender attitudes towards violence against women. Gender, Crime, and Justice is well suited to classes in gender, women's studies, criminal justice, and sociology.

    The Second Edition will be published Fall 2020.
