Credit Hours: 3
Lecture Hours: 3
Lab Hours: 0
Theory and practice have focused on perceptions of male scholars and practitioners and discussions about male offenders. It was not until the 1970s that crime affecting women and girls and more serious inclusion of women criminal justice scholars and practitioners was given more attention. This course will focus on female experiences as offenders, victims, and workers within the criminal justice system. Additionally, we will explore treatment programs that have been proposed to decrease female-perpetrated crime in both a historical and contemporary context.
