The conversation isn’t over: gaining justice for women and families

Masson, Isla; Booth, Natalie and Baldwin, Lucy (2023). The conversation isn’t over: gaining justice for women and families. In: Booth, Natalie; Masson, Isla and Baldwin, Lucy eds. Experiences of Punishment, Abuse and Justice by Women and Families, Volume 2. Bristol: Policy Press, pp. 132–136.



This concluding chapter is authored by the editors of the collection and seeks to bring together the main, overarching themes of the book. In doing so it reminds the reader of the Women, Family, Crime and Justice’s (WFCJ’s) main aims and purpose, and recaps on the work undertaken by members of the network to date. It then goes on to discuss the books two major themes: the punishment of women in the criminal justice system and experiences of violence, abuse and justice. In discussing the mentioned themes, the chapter reiterates arguments of inadequacy of current criminal justice interventions which often result in a failure to meet needs, and the need for effective social change and justice.
