Notes: 
Includes bibliographical references. --- Review, June 2006: This recently released edited collection is an exploration of the issues feminist thought brings to the field of criminology. Women and women's relationships to the criminal justice system are often overlooked within the context of the criminology canon. This book demonstrates the broad range of work in this area being done by feminists that considers the conditions of women's lives and analysis of systemic oppression. Criminalizing Women is a book that both provides space for criminalized women's narratives and, with a section on making change, it looks to the future with a toolbox full of feminist strategies to be used to address the issues revealed by these narratives.
