    Featuring contributed chapters written by experts within the discipline alongside valuable original material, Punishing Gender Past and Present: Examining the Criminal Justice System across Gendered Experiences exposes the disparities in how individuals within the system are treated according to gender.

    In Unit 1, chapters cover police misconduct victimization, the experiences of female sex workers, and discrimination and sexual harassment endured by female police officers. Unit II speaks to the sentencing and punishing of incarcerated women, differential treatment by the courts, delinquency and criminalization of girls, and disparities in death sentencing and execution according to gender. In Unit III, readers learn about gender and victimization with chapters that discuss intimate partner violence, sexual assault, femicide, and more.

    Unit IV addresses the reformatory model for women and girls, the impact of incarceration on fathers and their families, and issues related to LGBTQI offenders and prison management. Unit V addresses special populations, including mothers in prison, female sex offenders, male victims, white-collar offenders, and individuals with mental health issues. The final unit is dedicated to future considerations, including inclusivity and equity in criminal justice programming and practices across genders, as well as considering boys and men in the feminist pathways perspective.

    "Punishing Gender Past and Present is a skillfully written and well organized text that examines the gendered experiences of many diverse participants throughout the justice system. Beginning with gendered experiences and encounters with law enforcement, through courts, corrections, and even death, the authors examine the multitude of barriers and disparities faced by participants from both sides of the justice system. In twenty-one comprehensive chapters, categorized into five units, the authors conclude their work by discussing future directions in gendered focused research and programming. The text is concise and easily comprehensible to both undergraduate and graduate students, and is highly suited for undergraduate criminology, race, and gender courses."

    Co-author of In Search of Safety: Confronting Inequality in Women's Imprisonment

    "Punishing Gender Past and Present is a comprehensive guide to the myriad of ways gender is present within the criminal justice system. The editors have amassed a diverse cross-section of well researched chapters, each presented with an eye toward unraveling the ways inequality festers in institutions. Additionally, with a focus on areas such as sex trafficking and parenting from prison, the topics covered are wide-ranging. This book is an excellent resource for any course focused on criminal justice or deviant behavior."
