This text fills a longstanding and growing need for a current and comprehensive overview of women and the Canadian criminal justice system, in all its aspects. The wealth of content includes everything from an accessible overview of essential theory, to practical challenges such as mental health issues and community reintegration, to an examination of women’s roles and careers in the field of criminal justice.

Author Jane Barker has drawn on the expertise of criminal justice colleagues in various fields of specialization, including both academics and practitioners, to create this valuable resource.

Emond Publishing congratulates Jane Barker for receiving the Significant Contribution Award from the Canadian Psychological Association, Criminal Justice Section, for Women and the Criminal Justice System.
