Abstract

Feminism and Criminal Justice is a wide-ranging study of the involvement of the women's movement in England and Wales with criminal justice policy in the period c. 1920-70. Challenging the assumption that feminist interest in criminal justice only began with the emergence of campaigns over rape and domestic violence and of feminist criminology in the 1970s… This book provides a comprehensive study of the neglected story of the involvement of the women's movement with criminal justice policy in the 20th century. Taking the topic from the suffragette era to the early days of second-wave feminism, the book argues that criminal justice policy has been a continual concern for feminists.
