Women, Minorities, and Criminal Justice takes a hard look at crime, justice, and the criminal justice system through the lens of gender, race, sexuality, and their intersections. Dialogue about minorities in criminal justice is currently one of the most talked about issues in a variety of social and political spaces. Often missing is the inclusion of women. Filled with content appropriate for undergraduate or graduate exploration, Women, Minorities, and Criminal Justice examines such topics as police use of force, implicit bias, delinquency, women in non-US prisons, domestic violence, LGBTQ+, cybersecurity, women in leadership, and more. Carla Miller Coates and Moneque Walker-Pickett have brought together a multidisciplinary group of scholars to provide a panoramic view of current issues affecting women in various stages of the criminal justice. This reader-friendly format will foster thought-provoking discussions and illustrate the importance of continued research on race, ethnicity, and gender in all aspects of the administration of justice.
