Explore the British criminal justice system from the perspective of women – offenders, victims and survivors, and workers.
What is the British criminal justice system like for women?
Informed by two decades of front-line practice in the probation service and the youth justice sector, author Becky Shepherd explores how the British criminal justice system (CJS) impacts on the lives of women, from a range of perspectives: criminalised women, women who are the victims of crime, and women who make up the criminal justice workforce.
With real-life case studies, this book is ideal reading for students of Criminal Justice and Criminology courses, Gender and Women’s Studies, Carceral or Incarceration Studies, and related courses; as well as those in practice or training to work in social services, the criminal justice system, and related services.
