The Emerald Handbook of Feminism, Criminology and Social Change Reviews

This fascinating collection tells the story of how criminology and victimology were transformed by feminist perspectives, and reveals the compelling new insights critical perspectives on gender are bringing to the study of social harms, including those inflected by the legacies of colonialism, globalization and state-sanctioned forms of social control. Anyone in doubt as to the difference feminism and criminology can make to a world complexly fractured by violence, abuse and accumulating inequalities should read this book. Insightful, inspiring and empowering. -- David Gadd
Nearly half a century after International Women's Year, powerful mechanisms of gender inequality persist around the world. They generate poverty and cultural oppression, and are deeply implicated in violence, crime and victimization. This Handbook documents recent feminist criminology from many countries, highlighting gender dynamics around the Global South, new forms of online abuse, state violence, emerging theories of gender and crime, and creative strategies for social change. A great resource for criminology, and for the wider struggle for gender justice. -- Raewyn Connell
Does criminology 'see' gender? This is the central question engaged in this wide-ranging, important and timely volume. This book engages this topic in ways that are theoretically and empirically expansive. The collection offers depth and breadth of engagement with the ways in which criminology has ignored, marginalized and sometimes engaged questions of gender and all its related intersections. It also explores theoretical, methodological and practical possibilities that are important for shaping the discipline into the future.
The book includes contributions that cover a broad range of topics that go beyond questions of gender in criminological research to include serious engagement with intersectionality, engagement with the hegemony of global northern theorizing and voice, as well as work that touches on questions of decolonization in the criminological agenda.
The book is fundamental reading in criminology, women's and gender studies, and other disciplines interested in feminist work on violence, gendered violence in particular. This resource is essential for teachers in these fields and its interdisciplinary nature enables us to not only deconstruct disciplinary boundaries but also facilitates the asking of important questions about violence, victimhood and perpetration. I will recommend this book to all of my students and colleagues engaged in critical psychological work on violence and gender. -- Floretta Boonzaier, Professor of Psychology and Co-Director of the Hub for Decolonial Feminist Psychologies in Africa at the University of Cape Town, South Africa
