Summary
    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.

    The anthology introduces students to concepts associated with gender, ranging from equality to violence, by engaging them in in-depth examinations of crimes of sex and the discourse on sexual autonomy. The reader also examines the socialization of boys and girls, as well as explores various ways gender affects women and men in a society that values heteronormative masculinity. Furthermore, it 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.

    The second edition features new readings on sexual health and reproductive rights; human trafficking as a nexus of exploitation; violence in LGBTQ families; and the interplay of masculinity, crime, and criminal justice.

    Gender, Crime, and Justice is well suited to classes in gender, women's studies, criminal justice, and sociology.
