Studies of crime and criminology have traditionally focused on men, while women have either been overlooked or discussed only briefly and in stereotypical ways. Allison Morris' book considers all aspects of women and crime, scrutinizing the conventional accounts of women's criminality and the validity of mainstream criminological theories for women. Examining the roles of all women involved in crime and criminal justice - defendants and prisoners, victims and criminal justice professionals - she considers how far stereotypical conceptions of the roles of women affect responses to them in the criminal justice system. Dr Morris shows that an understanding of women's crime is of fundamental significance for criminology. This work should be of interest to students of criminology and women's studies.
