The Poverty of a Gender Neutral Criminology: Introduction to the Special Issue on Current Approaches to Understanding Female Offending

Australian and New Zealand Journal of Criminology, The
Volume 41 Issue 1 (Apr 2008)

Abstract: The role of females in offending behaviour, both in terms of understanding causal processes, as well as relevant theories to explain female offending and the appropriate system responses to control and prevent female offending is an often over looked and misunderstood area of inquiry. This editorial talks about how the articles in this special issue engage the issues that arise when exploring crime and criminal behaviour by gender.
