Book Description:
This informative book is an update of The Report of the LEAA [Law Enforcement Assistance Administration] Task Force on Women, published in October 1975. It evaluates the 1975 recommendations made on issues that the criminal justice field should examine to ensure that women and girls are treated fairly in the criminal justice system. Female offenders, female crime victims, and female criminal justice professionals remain substantially neglected populations in the criminal and juvenile justice systems. Despite the gains made by women since 1975, current evidence shows that:
- Although the nature and composition of female offenders have changed, the special needs of the burgeoning adult and juvenile offender populations often remain overlooked.
- Although assistance to crime victims has improved, the need remains for a firm commitment from the criminal justice and juvenile justice systems to change the way these systems respond to women and girls who have been, or potentially could be, victims of crime.
- Although opportunities for female criminal justice professionals have improved, gender bias and inequality still exist within the criminal justice field and women’s progress through the ranks continues to be slow.

Introduction; Executive Summary; Chapter 1. Adult Female Offenders; Chapter 2. Female Juvenile Offenders; Chapter 3. Women and Girls as Victims; Chapter 4. Women Who Work in the Criminal Justice System; Conclusion; Index.
