  10. Gender, Crime and Justice from Routledge

    Criminological research has historically been based on the study of men, boys and crime. This changed in the 1970s, when more attention was given to gender in the study of crime. Today, the study of gender and crime is burgeoning within criminology and includes a vast literature.

    Routledge is pleased to publish a range of titles which look at women as offenders, victims and justice professionals.  Browse below to see what we have to offer in this fascinating area of study!

    We are also pleased to bring you a collection of recent articles from across our journal portfolio related to gender issues in crime and criminal justice. The articles cover a range of topics, including research about women offenders and women as victims of crime. Click here to read the articles for free.
