Item description for Women and Justice (Women and the Law, 1) by MURASKIN...
The discrimination and inequitable treatment of women within international criminal justice systems is the focus of this timely and insightful text. Clearly illustrated within the nine chapters of the book, women, as a class, have been excluded from participating as workers in the criminal justice system. Women have also received inferior treatment when incarcerated, compared to their male counterparts; and have had their court proceedings influenced by sex role stereotypes when women are the victims of a crime. These distinctive studies by international authors offer a global, comparative analysis of women in the criminal justice systems of South Korea, Finland, Egypt, Lebanon, Great Britain, the United States, and the Caribbean nations. Beyond analysis of past and existing circumstances, the authors also offer suggestions to grant women full equality in criminal justice policies and practices around the world.
