SOC 343LEC Gender & Crime


This course explores the important and under-studied intersection between gender and crime, focusing on how gender shapes contact with the justice system as offenders, victims, and as workers in the criminal justice system. We will explore a number of issues related to gender and crime, including delinquency and offense patterns by gender (and the gender gap in official crime statistics), the gendered nature and experience of victimization, the interaction between gender and various stages of the criminal justice system, the experiences of women who work as criminal justice practitioners, and how race, class, age, and sexuality intersect with gender to create unique criminal and victimization patterns for particular groups of men and women.
