Gender, Crime and In-Justice

An examination of the relationship(s) between gender and criminal offending, detection of and societal reaction to that offending, and victimization. We will look at the role gender and gendered experiences play in creating, legitimating, and perpetuating the fear of crime on masculinity and the role it plays in defining offenders and victims, and on the unique challenges gender variation raises in the context of the criminal and legal systems.
