Sexual crimes, female victims, experiences and societal reactions to sexual violence and issues of privacy are covered. Attention is also paid to women as offenders and professionals in criminal justice.From the Back Cover:
It's a Crime: Women and Justice is the most comprehensive text ever written that focuses on all issues of women in criminal justice. Each chapter meets a need for further exploration of the reality of justice for women, and several provide information about previously unstudied or understudied groups. The content places what we know about women and justice within the area of women's issues, and extends to medical concerns of offenders and workforce dilemmas of women who work within the criminal justice system.
The third edition is even more exciting than the previous two editions. Over these many generations, dramatic, social, and legal changes have been accomplished on behalf of women's equality. Women have made these changes happen. They have not been passive, but rather they have worked together to make changes, to create a better world where there are few constrictions. Today, women and girls live the legacy of women's rights. It's a Crime, if we do not realize the importance of the role that women play. Basic human rights are fundamental to all, women and men alike.
