The Assessment and Treatment of Women Offenders: An Integrative Perspective.
The Assessment and Treatment of Women Offenders: An Integrative Perspective cover image By Kelley Blanchette and Shelley Lynn Brown.
Chichester, West Sussex, England; Hoboken, NJ: J. Wiley & Sons, ©2006.
Series: Wiley Series in Forensic Clinical Psychology.
"There is a large body of research that provides guidance for those working with offenders on how they should be treated once they are in the correctional system. The problem is that most, if not all this research has been conducted on all male populations and it is assumed that women offenders are the same. However, women have different needs and support systems than men in some areas of their lives and it is unclear whether all research based on men can be generalized in this way.
The book provides a review of the research literature to guide evidence-based practice in the assessment and treatment of adult female offenders. An historical overview of women's crime and imprisonment will be followed by a global review of various theories of female criminality...." - (publisher's description)

The Delinquent Girl.
The Delinquent Girl cover image Edited by Margaret A. Zahn.
Philadelphia, PA: Temple University Press, 2009.
"Over the past decade and a half, girls' involvement in the juvenile justice system has increased. Yet the topic remains under-studied among criminologists. The Delinquent Girl is a "state-of-the-field" evaluation that identifies and analyzes girls who become delinquent, the kinds of crimes they commit and the reasons they commit them. The distinguished academics and practitioners who contributed to this volume provide an overview of the research on girls' delinquency, discuss policy implications and point to areas where further research is critically needed. The book begins with an examination of the major theories and explanations of female delinquency and considers the "gender gap" between male and female offenders. Other issues, such as the role of the juvenile justice system and changes in justice policies, are also addressed. Throughout The Delinquent Girl, the contributors use criminological and feminist theories to consider causes and implications--e.g., family dysfunction, community factors--and provide insight into treating and preventing juvenile delinquency." - (publisher's description)

Deviant Women: Female Crime and Criminology in Revolutionary Russia, 1880-1930.
By Sharon A. Kowalsky.
DeKalb, IL: Northern Illinois University Press, ©2009.
"This title examines the position of women in early Soviet society through the lens of deviance. After seizing power in 1917, the Bolsheviks initiated reforms aimed at abolishing the old way of life in Russia. A new Family Code liberalized marriage procedures, promoted communal living arrangements, and abolished the concept of illegitimacy. Other decrees legalized abortion, deregulated prostitution, and emancipated women. The Bolsheviks' Marxist ideology that guided these reforms was also behind the assertion that crime, an artifact of bourgeois capitalist exploitation, would disappear under socialism. As crime persisted, Soviet criminologists - a cohort of jurists, doctors, sociologists, anthropologists, psychiatrists, statisticians, and forensic experts - were charged with examining its causes and motives to determine the most effective methods to eliminate it. The problem of female crime occupied a prominent position in criminologists' studies.
In explaining 'traditional' female crimes of the domestic sphere - infanticide, spouse murder, and petty theft, among others - criminologists pointed to the offenders' backwardness and ignorance, material circumstances, and even biology. Kowalsky examines the position of women in early Soviet society through the lens of deviance, exploring how Soviet criminologists understood female crime and how their attitudes helped shape the development of Soviet social and behavioral norms. "Deviant Women" looks at the emergence of criminology in early Soviet Russia, tracing the development of principles and theories - in particular of female deviance - and highlighting the ways in which criminologists were able to conduct innovative social science research under the constraints of Bolshevik ideology. Kowalsky then focuses on the analyses of female crime and criminologists' attitudes concerning sexuality, geography, and class.
Concluding with a close study of infanticide, the most 'typical' crime committed by women, Kowalsky discusses the social attitudes that were revealed in the professional discussion of this crime. Historians of modern Russia and the USSR, scholars of gender studies, and those studying criminology will be fascinated by this original study." - (publisher's description)

Drugs, Women, and Justice: Roles of the Criminal Justice System for Drug-Affected Women.
Drugs, Women, and Justice: Roles of the Criminal Justice System for Drug-Affected Women cover image Edited by James A. Swartz, Patricia O'Brien, and Arthur J. Lurigio.
New York, NY: Haworth Press, ©2006.
"The numbers of women offenders involved in the correctional system are quickly growing. Drugs, Women, and Justice: Roles of the Criminal Justice System for Drug-Affected Women gathers a distinguished group of researchers and policy analysts into one volume to explore the broad social and individual implications of current policy and practice pertaining to women in the criminal justice system. This valuable resource provides readers with a superb overview of the current state of knowledge and provides recommendations for new directions. Each top-notch chapter was originally presented at the 2005 Drugs, Women, and Justice Symposium, held on the University of Illinois at Chicago campus and sponsored by the Jane Addams College of Social Work Substance Abuse Research Collaboration through a grant from the National Institute on Drug Abuse.
Traditionally, criminal justice studies and rehabilitation programs have focused on male offenders. Recent studies reinforce the current evidence that females should have their needs addressed differently. This unique book presents the latest research and thinking in complex and still emerging areas of policy and treatment for women in the criminal justice system." - (publisher's description)

The Fairer Death: Executing Women in Ohio.
The Fairer Death: Executing Women in Ohio cover image By Victor L. Streib.
Athens, OH: Ohio University Press, ©2006.
Series: Ohio University Press Series on Law, Society, and Politics in the Midwest.
"Women on death row are such a rarity that, once condemned, they may be ignored and forgotten. Ohio, a typical, middle-of-the-road death penalty state, provides a telling example of this phenomenon. The Fairer Death: Executing Women in Ohio explores Ohio's experience with the death penalty for women and reflects on what this experience reveals about the death penalty for women throughout the nation. Victor Streib's analysis of two centuries of Ohio death penalty legislation and adjudication reveals no obvious exclusion of women or even any recognition of an issue of sex bias. In this respect, Ohio's justice system exemplifies the subtle and insidious nature of this cultural disparity. Professor Streib provides detailed descriptions of the cases of the four women actually executed by Ohio since its founding and of the cases of the ten women sentenced to death in Ohio in the current death penalty era (1973-2005). Some of these cases had a profound impact on death penalty law, but most were routine and drew little attention. A generation later, reversals and commutations have left only one woman on Ohio's death row. Although Streib focuses specifically on Ohio, the underlying premise is that Ohio is, in many ways, a typical death penalty state. The Fairer Death provides insight into our national experience, provoking questions about the rationale for the death penalty and the many disparities in its administration." - (publisher's description)

The Female Offender: Girls, Women, and Crime, 2nd edition.
The Female Offender: Girls, Women, and Crime cover image By Meda Chesney-Lind and Lisa Pasko.
Thousand Oaks, CA: Sage Publications, ©2004.
"Scholarship in criminology over the last few decades has often left little room for research and theory on how female offenders are perceived and handled in the criminal justice system. In truth, one out of every four juveniles arrested is female and the population of women in prison has tripled in the past decade. Co-authored by Meda Chesney-Lind, one of the pioneers in the development of the feminist theoretical perspective in criminology, the subject matter of The Female Offender: Girls, Women and Crime, Second Edition redresses the balance by providing critical insight into these issues.
In an engaging style, authors Meda Chesney-Lind and Lisa Pasko explore gender and cultural factors in women’s lives that often precede criminal behavior and address the question of whether female offenders are more violent today than in the past. The authors provide a revealing look at how public discomfort with the idea of women as criminals significantly impacts the treatment received by this offender population." - (publisher's description)

Female Offenders and Risk Assessment: Hidden in Plain Sight.
By Janet T. Davidson.
El Paso, TX: LFB Scholarly Pub., 2009.
Series: Criminal Justice: Recent Scholarship.
"Davidson draws on both quantitative and qualitative analyses to demonstrate that there are significant contextual differences between the onset and continuation of female and male offending. In turn, this challenges the underlying assumptions of risk and need assessments for female offenders. While her research supports the predictive validity of a commonly used risk/need instrument (the LSI-R), the results of in-depth interviews with male and female offenders challenge the content validity of this instrument. Although this instrument appears to gender-neutral, the veil of objectivity masks the role, especially, of victimization in the lives of female offenders and the manner in which this affects their risks and needs." - (publisher's description)

Female Offenders: Critical Perspectives and Effective Interventions, 2nd edition.
Female Offenders: Critical Perspectives and Effective Interventions cover image Edited by Ruth T. Zaplin.
Sudbury, MA: Jones and Bartlett Publishers, ©2008.
"The number of female offenders in the United States is skyrocketing. Our tough on crime approach puts a female offender behind bars, but doesn't consider the factors that led to their incarceration. Female Offenders: Critical Perspectives and Effective Interventions, Second Edition proposes such an alternative, one that truly addresses the needs of female offenders and the root issues connected to their maladaptive behaviors, trauma histories, and mental health problems. By focusing on these root issues, this book prepares future correctional managers and supervisors to rehabilitate and empower female offenders to re-enter society in a meaningful and productive way. The Second Edition includes chapters written by experts in the field that discuss the diversity of issues facing female offenders in our culture from a variety of perspectives. Grounded in the relevant research and literature, this book blends theory with practice by presenting theories on the rehabilitation of female offenders alongside program models and effective strategies for re-entry into society." - (publisher's description)

Girls, Women, and Crime: Selected Readings cover image Edited by Meda Chesney-Lind and Lisa Pasko.
Thousand Oaks, CA: Sage Publications, ©2004.
"Edited by Meda Chesney-Lind and Lisa Pasko, Girls, Women, and Crime: Selected Readings is a compilation of journal articles on the female offender written by leading researchers in the field of criminology and women's studies. The individual sections in the book survey four major areas: theories of female criminality, literature on female juvenile delinquents, women as offenders, and women in prison.
The readings in Girls, Women, and Crime focus on two central questions: How does gender matter in crime and the justice system? What characterizes women's and girls' pathway to crime? In answering these key queries, the contributors reveal the complex worlds females in the criminal justice system must often negotiate--worlds that are frequently riddled with violence, victimization, discrimination, and economic marginalization." - (publisher's description)

The Incarcerated Woman: Rehabilitative Programming in Women's Prisons.
The Incarcerated Woman: Rehabilitative Programming in Women's Prisons cover image By Susan F. Sharp.
Upper Saddle River, NJ: Prentice Hall, ©2003.
Prentice Hall's Women in Criminal Justice Series.
"The Incarcerated Woman: Rehabilitative Programming in Women's Prisons provides a comprehensive overview of an important topic. With incarceration of women in the United States at an all-time high, it is imperative to assess what does and does not work in rehabilitative programming. This volume addresses that issue in depth. By examining existing programs in the context of the special needs of women prisoners, this book illustrates that parity in programming is not simply having the same programs that exist in men's prisons.
Written by some of the foremost scholars in the area of feminist criminology, this book provides the most comprehensive, cutting-edge overview available of treatment/rehabilitative policies and programming for women prisoners. Focused on the special needs of women prisoners, rather than on prison programming in general, it explores those needs in detail, the ability of current programming to meet those needs, and what could be done. Each chapter addresses the theory, practice, policies, and issues of a different aspect of rehabilitative programming needs of women in prison--e.g., education, health needs, mental health issues, abuse issues, substance abuse issues, parenting issues, and discharge planning for women prisoners." - (publisher's description)

Mothers Who Kill Their Children: Understanding the Acts of Moms from Susan Smith to the "Prom Mom".
Mothers Who Kill Their Children: Understanding the Acts of Moms from Susan Smith to the 'Prom Mom' cover image By Cheryl L. Meyer and Michelle Oberman; with Kelly White, Michelle Rone, and Tara C. Proano.
New York, NY: New York University Press, ©2001.
"A special kind of horror is reserved for mothers who kill their children. Cases such as those of Susan Smith, who drowned her two young sons by driving her car into a lake, and Melissa Drexler, who disposed of her newborn baby in a restroom at her prom, become media sensations. Unfortunately, in addition to these high-profile cases, hundreds of mothers kill their children in the United States each year. The question most often asked is, why? What would drive a mother to kill her own child?
Those who work with such cases, whether in clinical psychology, social services, law enforcement or academia, often lack basic understandings about the types of circumstances and patterns which might lead to these tragic deaths, and the social constructions of motherhood which may affect women's actions. These mothers oftentimes defy the myths and media exploitation of them as evil, insane, or lacking moral principles, and they are not a homogenous group. In obvious ways, intervention strategies should differ for a teenager who denies her pregnancy and then kills her newborn and a mother who kills her two toddlers out of mental illness or to further a relationship. A typology is needed to help us to understand the different cases that commonly occur and the patterns they follow in order to make possible more effective prevention plans.
Mothers Who Kill Their Children draws on extensive research to identify clear patterns among the cases of women who kill their children, shedding light on why some women commit these acts. The characteristics the authors establish will be helpful in creating more meaningful policies, more targeted intervention strategies, and more knowledgeable evaluations of these cases when they arise." - (publisher's description)

Releasing Prisoners, Redeeming Communities: Reentry, Race, and Politics.
Releasing Prisoners, Redeeming Communities: Reentry, Race, and Politics cover image By Anthony C. Thompson.
New York, UK: New York University Press, ©2008.
"In the middle of the first decade of the twenty-first century, African Americans made up approximately twelve percent of the U.S. population but close to forty percent of the U.S. prison population. This disparity is due, in part, to the introduction of tough sentencing laws passed in the 1990s, some in response to the widespread use of crack cocaine, which was sold and used by far more black than white Americans. Now, in the latter half of the decade, the nation is in the midst of the largest multi-year discharge of prisoners in its history. In Releasing Prisoners, Redeeming Communities, Anthony C. Thompson discusses what is likely to happen to these ex-offenders and why." - (publisher's description)

Resistance Behind Bars: The Struggles of Incarcerated Women.
Resistance Behind Bars: The Struggles of Incarcerated Women cover image By Victoria Law.
Oakland, CA: PM Press, ©2009.
"In 1974, women imprisoned at New York's maximum-security prison at Bedford Hills staged what is known as the August Rebellion. Protesting the brutal beating of a fellow prisoner, the women fought off guards, holding seven of them hostage, and took over sections of the prison. While many have heard of the 1971 Attica prison uprising, the August Rebellion remains relatively unknown even in activist circles. Resistance Behind Bars is determined to challenge and change such oversights. As it examines daily struggles against appalling prison conditions and injustices, Resistance documents both collective organizing and individual resistance among women incarcerated in the U.S. Emphasizing women's agency in resisting the conditions of their confinement through forming peer education groups, clandestinely arranging ways for children to visit mothers in distant prisons and raising public awareness about their lives, Resistance seeks to spark further discussion and research into the lives of incarcerated women and galvanize much-needed outside support for their struggles." - (publisher's description)

Understanding Gender, Crime, and Justice.
Understanding Gender, Crime, and Justice cover image By Merry Morash.
Thousand Oaks, CA: Sage Publications, ©2006.
"Why are there pronounced gender differences in rates of criminal victimization? Does gender influence the response of the criminal justice system and other parts of the community to offenders and to crime victims? What part does gender play in the etiology of illegal activities committed by both males and females? Understanding Gender, Crime, and Justice takes a contemporary look at such questions and considers areas that are often neglected in other books on gender, crime, and justice.
In the last three decades, there has been an explosion of theory and related research relevant to gender, crime, and justice. Author Merry Morash, a well-known feminist scholar in the field of criminal justice, acquaints readers with key breakthroughs in criminological conceptualization and theories to explain the interplay between gender and both crime and justice. Understanding Gender, Crime, and Justice pays special attention to race, ethnicity, and immigrant groups, and provides a unique comparative perspective." - (publisher's description)

Victims as Offenders: The Paradox of Women's Violence in Relationships.
Victims as Offenders: The Paradox of Women's Violence in Relationships cover image By Susan L. Miller.
New Brunswick, NJ: Rutgers University Press, ©2005.
"Arrests of women for assault increased more than 40 percent over the past decade, while male arrests for this offense have fallen by about one percent. Some studies report that for the first time ever the rate of reported intimate partner abuse among men and women is nearly equal. Susan L. Miller's timely book explores the important questions raised by these startling statistics.
Are women finally closing the gender gap on violence? Or does this phenomenon reflect a backlash shaped by men who batter? How do abusive men use the criminal justice system to increase control over their wives? Do police, courts, and treatment providers support aggressive arrest policies for women? Are these women "victims" or "offenders"?
In answering these questions, Miller draws on extensive data from a study of police behavior in the field, interviews with criminal justice professionals and social service providers, and participant observation of female offender programs. She offers a critical analysis of the theoretical assumptions framing the study of violence and provides insight into the often contradictory implications of the mandatory and pro-arrest policies enacted in the 1980s and 1990s. Miller argues that these enforcement strategies, designed to protect women, have often victimized women in different ways. Without sensationalizing, Miller unveils a reality that looks very different from what current statistics on domestic violence imply." - (publisher's description)

War on the Family: Mothers in Prison and the Families They Leave Behind.
War on the Family: Mothers in Prison and the Families They Leave Behind cover image By Renny Golden.
New York, NY: Routledge, 2005.
"When most people think of prisoners, they think of men. Yet women are the fastest growing prison population. Perhaps more surprising, some 75% of women behind bars are mothers. Each year these mothers leave behind 350,000 children under the age of 18. More than half of mothers in state prisons never see their children during their incarceration.
In The War on the Family, noted social rights activist Renny Golden shows that as a direct result of President Ronald Reagan's administration's War On Drugs campaign, the rates of women in prison have skyrocketed, leading to the unintended destruction of the family. Through her interviews inside prisons across the country, Golden identifies the risks and needs of these imprisoned mothers and their children, the obstacles communities face in successfully helping these families, and the implications current judicial policies--like mandatory sentencing and lack of drug treatment programs--pose for women, children, families, and the communities in which we live." - (publisher's description)

What Works with Women Offenders.
What works with women offenders cover image Edited by Rosemary Sheehan, Gill McIvor and Chris Trotter.
Cullompton, UK: Willan, 2007.
"The number of women prisoners has been growing rapidly during recent years and in many places has more than doubled in the past decade. However most of the research and publications in this area are related to men. There is a lack of literature relating to women offenders and for this reason the book is clearly needed. What Works with Women Offenders provides a comprehensive analysis of issues relating to work with women offenders with chapters written by academics or professionals with a high degree of expertise in their specific field.

When Mothers Kill: Interviews from Prison.
When Mothers Kill: Interviews from Prison cover image By Michelle Oberman and Cheryl L. Meyer.
New York, NY: New York University Press, ©2008.
"Michelle Oberman and Cheryl L. Meyer don't write for news magazines or prime-time investigative television shows, but the stories they tell hold the same fascination. When Mothers Kill is compelling. In a clear, direct fashion the authors recount what they have learned from interviewing women imprisoned for killing their children. Readers will be shocked and outraged-as much by the violence the women have endured in their own lives as by the violence they engaged in-but they will also be informed and even enlightened.
Oberman and Meyer are leading authorities on their subject. Their 2001 book, Mothers Who Kill Their Children, drew from hundreds of newspaper articles as well as from medical and social science journals to propose a comprehensive typology of 'maternal filicide.' In that same year, driven by a desire to test their typology-and to better understand child-killing women not just as types but as individuals-Oberman and Meyer began interviewing women who had been incarcerated for the crime. After conducting lengthy, face-to-face interviews with forty prison inmates, they returned and selected eight women to speak with at even greater length. This new book begins with these stories, recounted in the matter-of-fact words of the inmates themselves.
There are collective themes that emerge from these individual accounts, including histories of relentless interpersonal violence, troubled relationships with parents (particularly with mothers), twisted notions of romantic love, and deep conflicts about motherhood. These themes structure the book's overall narrative, which also includes an insightful examination of the social and institutional systems that have failed these women. Neither the mothers nor the authors offer these stories as excuses for these crimes." - (publisher's description)

Women Behind Bars: The Crisis of Women in the U.S. Prison System.
Women Behind Bars: The Crisis of Women in the U.S. Prison System cover image By Silja J.A. Talvi.
Emeryville, CA: Seal Press, ©2007.
"More and more women--mothers, grandmothers, wives, daughters, and sisters--are doing hard prison time all across the United States. Many of them are facing the prospect of years, decades, even lifetimes behind bars. Oddly, there's been little public discussion about the dramatic increase of women in the prison system. What exactly is happening here, and why?
The answers are in Women Behind Bars, in which investigative journalist Silja Talvi sheds light on why American girls and women are being locked up at such unprecedented rates.
Talvi travels across the country to weave together interviews with inmates, correctional officers, and administrators, providing readers with a glance at the impact incarceration has on our society. With a combination of compassion and critical analysis, Talvi delivers a timely, in-depth analysis of a growing and extremely complicated issue." - (publisher's description)
