Product Overview

Gender, Crime and Victimisation is a thoughtful and thought-provoking book, exploring gender patterns in both offending and victimization. It offers a thorough examination of how these patterns in society are variously established and represented, researched, explained, and responded to by policy makers and criminal justice agencies.

Bringing together key theory, research and policy developments, the book combines perspectives on the study of criminology with those of victimology and gender studies - drawing particularly on the influence of feminism. It analyses processes of criminalization and social control, and their structural biases. It explores fears, anxieties, and worries about crime, as well as particular vulnerabilities to crime.
