Fifth Edition

Joanne Belknap's The Invisible Woman: Gender, Crime, and Justice fifth edition offers a thorough exploration of the historical and current issues regarding women’s and girls’ victimization and offending, as well as women’s entry into the professions of and current day experiences of judges, lawyers, police officers, and correctional officers. Working to counter the invisibility of women in these areas, the text commits to a strong feminist perspective that incorporates current research, theory, offending, victimization, the practitioner experience, and the intersections of sexism with racism, classism and other types of oppression.
