Summary
"Doing Justice, Doing Gender: Women in Legal and Criminal Justice Occupations is a sociologically grounded analysis of women working in the traditionally male-dominated occupations of law, policing, and corrections. This Second Edition represents not only a thorough update of research on women in these fields but a careful consideration of changes in justice organizations and occupations over the past 40 years and their impact on women's work roles." "This is an excellent supplemental text for advanced undergraduate and graduate courses such as Women and the Criminal Justice System, Gender Justice, Gender and Work, Women and Work, and Sociology of Work and Occupations in departments of sociology, criminal justice, women's studies, and social work."--Jacket
