Feminist criminology grew out of the Women’s Movement of the 1970s in response to the neglect of women by, and the male dominance of, mainstream criminology. This important volume traces the development of feminist criminology and assesses its impact on the discipline. Examining the development of feminist theoretical perspectives and empirical research in criminology, this key book investigates their impact on research methods and topics, pedagogy and curriculum and employment in academic and criminal justice professions.

Claire M. Renzetti considers the potential for feminist criminology to transform the discipline, making it more progressive by including, as a central principle the need to analyze intersecting inequalities, especially those of gender, race and class, in order to fully understand both crime and justice. She skilfully gives a balanced view of the subject, incorporating both the successes and failures of feminist criminology and provides an extensive, up-to-date bibliography which allows criminology students to access, for their own research purposes, the large body of feminist criminological literature.
