Unmasking Women and Crime provides a cohesive view of the theory, history, and current issues having to do with the intersection between women and crime. This fresh perspective from recognized experts brings women out from behind the mask of simplistic stereotyping and examines the nuanced roles and issues of women offenders, women victims, and women criminal justice professionals. Using quantitative and qualitative approaches, it integrates explorations of victimization with those of perpetration. The roles and "fit" of women working in the criminal justice system also will be addressed. The use of case studies and milestone events throughout the book assists readers in understanding past, current, and future dynamics associated with the involvement of women in crime.
