Summary:"Feminist work within criminology has done much to enhance understanding of the link between sex, gender and crime, yet struggles to maintain relevance in a world where concerns about gender inequality are marginalized. In this book, Kerry Carrington takes a bold, critical and reflexive review--arguing for new feminist directions in furthering knowledge about the links between gender, sex, and crime that take into account global discrepancies and inequalities as well as those that shape patterns of crime and violence within nation states.The book argues that for feminism to enhance its conceptual and political relevance in 21st century requires new bold directions in feminist thinking about gender, crime and global justice. Issues explored in the book include the rising rates of violence and crime recorded for women offenders globally, the queering of crime and the existence of same sex abuse, the uneven geographical distribution of violence around the world and male victimization"--
"In this book, Kerry Carrington takes a bold, critical and reflexive approach to understanding the global divisions and inequalities that shape distinctive patterns of gender and crime. The book argues that for feminism to enhance its conceptual and political relevance in the 21st century requires bold new directions in feminist thinking about gender, crime and global justice, which take into account global divisions and inequalities. Issues explored in the book include the forced marriage of child brides, female genital mutilation, feminicide, honour crimes, rape and domestic violence, and the systemic denial of female rights justified by religion, custom or culture. It also explores rising rates of violence recorded for women offenders globally, and their increasing participation in terrorism, as well as troubling male-on-male violence in anomic spaces cultivated by globalising forces. Feminism and Global Justice argues that the world needs feminism more than ever to address systemic culturally shaped and diverse forms of injustice experienced by females across the globe, many of them children. It will be essential reading for international and national human rights organisations, as well as academics and students engaged in the study of criminology, development studies, sociology, politics, and gender studies"--
Description
Summary:

In this book, Kerry Carrington takes a bold, critical and reflexive approach to understanding the global divisions and inequalities that shape distinctive patterns of gender and crime.

The book argues that in order for feminist criminology to enhance its conceptual and political relevance in the twenty-first century, bold new directions in scholarship on gender, crime and global justice are required that also take into account global divisions and inequalities. Issues explored in the book include the forced marriage of child brides, female genital mutilation, feminicide, honour crimes, rape and domestic violence, and the systemic denial of female rights justified by religion, custom or culture. It also explores rising rates of violence recorded for women offenders globally, and their increasing participation in terrorism, as well as troubling male-on-male violence in anomic spaces cultivated by globalising forces.

Feminism and Global Justice argues that the world needs feminism more than ever to address systemic culturally shaped and diverse forms of injustice experienced by females across the globe, many of them children. It will be essential reading for international and national human rights organisations, as well as academics and students engaged in the study of criminology, development studies, sociology, politics, and gender studies.
