New Titles of Interest

I'll occasionally highlight new titles of interest.  

The Impact of Gender Quotas (2012, click on title to access)

 The introduction of electoral gender quotas in diverse contexts around the globe has attracted a great deal of scholarly and political interest. To date, research on these measures has focused primarily on quota design, adoption, and effects on the numbers of women elected. While this remains a crucial focus, quotas are not simply about changing the proportion of women in political office. Both supporters and opponents of quotas suggest, albeit from different perspectives, that positive action for women as candidates will influence the kinds of women elected.

 Repudiating Feminism:  Young Women in a Neoliberal World by Christina Scharff (2012, click on title to access). 

Grounded in rich empirical research and providing a timely contribution to debates on engagements with feminism, Repudiating Feminism explores how young German and British women think, talk and feel about feminism. Drawing on in-depth interviews with women from different racial and class backgrounds, and with different sexual orientations, Repudiating Feminism reveals how young women's diverse positionings intersect with their views of feminism.

Routledge international handbook of crime and gender studies (2013, in library call number HV6024.5 .R68)


A collection of articles with various perspectives on gender issues as related to crime studies.
