Gender, Crime and Justice (2015CCJ)

"Despite the public's obsession with crime, victimisation and criminal justice, despite the morbid fear that crime and victimisation arouses, despite the endless volumes written to account for offending, victimisation and criminal justice processing, gender, the most powerful social factor of all has been virtually ignored by criminologists." (Leonard, 1982). Women are one of the fastest growing groups being incarcerated, they are more likely than men to be victims of certain types of crime (i.e. domestic and sexual violence) and men have traditionally (although now being debated) been more likely to perpetrate violent crime. It is critically important that the issue of how gender ,femininity, masculinity, and intersections with other statuses, shapes crime, victimisation and our responses to both. Drawing on national and international contexts, this course explores, and seeks to theoretically explain, the persistent and profound differences between men and women in crime rates and patterns, victimization, and criminal justice system experiences and responses. The course will also consider intersections between gender, Indigeneity, social class and sexual orientation. Incompatible: CCJ215 Gender, Crime and Justice
