Women, Crime, and the Canadian Criminal Justice System
Challenges myths about female crime in Canada. Early chapters present evidence that Canadian women and girls are not major criminal threats to safety, and later chapters explore why women and girls commit crime, feminist and other perspectives on crime by women and girls, progressive alternatives to correctional facilities, and alternative policies. Includes chapter summaries, discussion questions, and problem-solving scenarios. Annotation copyrighted by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
