Summary "Feminist work within criminology has done much to enhance understanding of the link between sex, gender and crime, yet struggles to maintain relevance in a world where concerns about gender inequality are marginalized. In this book, Kerry Carrington takes a bold, critical and reflexive review--arguing for new feminist directions in furthering knowledge about the links between gender, sex, and crime that take into account global discrepancies and inequalities as well as those that shape patterns of crime and violence within nation states. The book argues that for feminism to enhance its conceptual and political relevance in 21st century requires new bold directions in feminist thinking about gender, crime and global justice. Issues explored in the book include the rising rates of violence and crime recorded for women offenders globally, the queering of crime and the existence of same sex abuse, the uneven geographical distribution of violence around the world and male victimization"-- Provided by publisher
