Global Issues, Women and Justice
Sharon Pickering, Caroline Lambert
Sydney Institute of Criminology, 2004 - Law - 378 pages
Global Issues, Women and Justice explores the ways women seek justice through the nation-state, global process, and international criminal justice mechanisms. It draws on a diversity of academic and advocate voices in examining how women have accessed justice under conditions of globalization, militarization, and colonization. Global Issues, Women and Justice will appeal to academics and activists as a valuable resource for research. As well, it provides numerous case studies of the ways women have mobilized to achieve justice, which will be useful both in the classroom and in campaigning.
