The Criminal Justice System and Women: Offenders, Prisoners, Victims, and Workers (Third Edition)
(McGraw-Hill, 2004; 624 pages) 

Consisting of original essays commissioned for the volume from leading scholars, and a number of recently published, important articles in the field, this significantly updated edition provides a comprehensive overview of how women both affect and are affected by crime and the criminal justice system. The Criminal Justice System and Women brings together feminist scholars from a variety of disciplines (including sociology, criminology, anthropology, and history), who describe, explain, and challenge the criminal justice system and its treatment of women. New topics in this edition include prostitution, abortion, globalization, Native American women prisoners, lesbians in prison, and mothers in prison. Natalie J. Sokoloff is a member of the faculty of the Ph.D. Programs in Criminal Justice and Sociology; both she and co-editor Barbara Raffel Price are professors at John Jay College Criminal Justice.
