About the Book

Here is a powerful look at gender issues in the criminal justice system, particularly as gender is related to sex offenses and the system’s response to those offenses. Experts examine inmate sexual aggression, gender disparity in bail setting, racial patterns of rape, the female offender’s adjustment to prison life, the psychological profile of female first offenders, and the self-image of juvenile prostitutes.
