Critical Reflections on Women, Family, Crime and Justice

Masson, Isla; Baldwin, Lucy and Booth, Natalie eds. (2021). Critical Reflections on Women, Family, Crime and Justice. Bristol: Bristol University Press.



Drawing on original research from the Women, Family, Crime and Justice research network, this book sheds new light on the challenges and experiences of women and families who encounter the criminal justice system in the UK. Each chapter demonstrates how these groups are often ignored, oppressed and repeatedly victimised. The book addresses crucial issues including short-term imprisonment, trauma-specific interventions, schools supporting children affected by parental imprisonment and visibility and voice in research. Bringing together contemporary knowledge from both research and practice, the book offers valuable insights and practical recommendations for positive action and change.
