This course examines women and crime – both as victims and offenders -- and how the criminal justice system has responded to female criminality. We investigate gender and socio-economic differences in criminality and the explanations used to explain these differences. This includes modern, feminist and post-modern perspectives. Topics covered include: substance abuse, sexual assault/victimization, prostitution/sex work, intimate partner abuse, murder; and murdered/missing Aboriginal women. (3,0,0).
Any 1st or 2nd year Arts course.
