Cowritten by two scholars with experience working in governmental criminal justice roles, this book reflects on the theme of gender in thinking about pathways both into and out of crime. Loraine Gelsthorpe and Carol Hedderman draw on new empirical evidence concerning both female crime persisters and desisters to explore the limitations of the application of general desistance theory to women specifically, while also looking at what works in preventing further crime with both women and men. Further addressing concerns that “what works” has been defined too narrowly in terms of an exclusive focus on offending as an outcome, Women, Crime and Criminal Justice delves into cutting-edge developments in the increasingly politicized field of criminal justice to set out new agendas for diverse areas of criminology, suggesting appropriate approaches for the future and never losing its focus on women.
