* Biographies of key theorists and researchers, prominent women offenders, and advocates for gender and justice

* Uniform Crime Report and Bureau of Justice statistics on girls' and womens' offending relative to men

* Primary source documents on legislation impacting women's offending and victimization

* A chronology of women's offending and legislation from the Colonial era to the present

MEDIA REVIEWS
"This most recent addition to ABC-CLIO's Contemporary World Issues series offers a broad survey of the terrain. The series itself is uniformly attractive in terms of an appealing and easy-to-use format. Although any student of 'women and crime' would find some useful information in this volume. . . . Altogether, this reference work is a useful resource on a topic of growing interest and significance." - ARBA
"This title will be a solid addition to academic libraries for use by students in criminal justice and women's studies programs." - Library Journal
