9781598844238: Women and Crime: A Reference Handbook (Contemporary World Issues)

Women and Crime: A Reference Handbook examines how women's patterns of offending have changed over time in America, from the Colonial period to the present. The book sets the stage with a historical overview of women's criminal activity. Subsequent chapters cover such topics as changes in women's status and patterns of offending; the impact of childhood abuse on the development of criminality; and how changes in law, the War on Drugs, and other crime policy have, in fact, increased the frequency of women's imprisonment and arrests. International issues, such as legalization of prostitution, sex trafficking, and women's involvement in organized crime, including drug cartels, are also explored.

Each chapter examines theory, research, law, policy, and key players in the evolving response to women's crime patterns. Throughout the work, the author links women's status, victimization, and offending patterns, and suggests how crime control policy, far from saving women, is increasingly making it impossible for female offenders to live on the outside.

Book Description:

How has the women's movement impacted crime? Are women committing more violent crimes? More white-collar crimes? Have they moved into illegal activities that were previously male preserves? What about current punitive crime-control policies—do they help, or merely create a cycle of imprisonment? These and other questions are explored in this fact-filled volume.

About the Author:

Judith A. Warner, PhD, is professor of sociology and criminal justice at Texas A&M International University, Laredo, TX. Her published works include ABC-CLIO's U.S. Border Security: A Reference Handbook and the two-volume Battleground: Immigration.
