Women continue to be underrepresented in policing, and female officers are more likely to work in gender-specific areas within their organizations.Policing and Gendered Justice provides a comprehensive analysis of women and policing in North America. It further enhances the body of knowledge on gender and policing by bridging the gap between theory and practice, and by using an empowerment approach to encourage discussion of the need to make ideological and structural changes and the need to promote social action and social change. Through a critical, feminist examination of gender and policing, and through a comparative analysis of women in policing in Canada and the United States, Corsianos offers a unique and original account of women police officers' experiences and the role that feminist analyses can play in providing greater justice. Only a handful of books have focused on the relationship between gender and policing globally, let alone within North America, making this book a necessary resource for those studying in Criminology and Criminal Justice. For professors wishing to integrate a discussion of gender into a policing course, or for students wanting to better understand the complexities of gender and policing, Policing and Gendered Justice works as an informative, innovative approach to addressing gender differences in the profession.

MEDIA REVIEWS
""Policing and Gendered Justice" provides an excellent overview of the position of women working as police officers in both Canada and the United States, past and present. The integration of theory, empirical evidence, and policy implications is striking and offers a thorough treatment of what we know about women in policing today as well as a careful guide to research and planning for the future. The book would be useful in university courses that address policing more generally or those that focus on gender and workplace issues. The discussion of policy-oriented and feminist action research makes this contribution truly unique among the literature on work and gender issues in the criminal justice system." - Nancy Jurik, Arizona State University

"Certainly, there is a major need for more rigorous empirical and theoretical work on gender and policing in North America. Corsianos' path-breaking book answers this call and offers readers an insightful feminist analysis." - Walter DeKeseredy, University of Ontario Institute of Technology
