GENDER, PSYCHOLOGY, AND JUSTICE: WOMEN’S EXPERIENCES WITH THE CRIMINAL JUSTICE SYSTEM
Women who have contact with the criminal justice system often have experiences quite different from their male counterparts. But how different? And why? Is it different in criminal courts and family courts? And what about race, class and sexual orientation – do they contribute to how a person is treated or the outcomes of courts? And what does it all mean?
Finally, some researchers have looked into how gender intersects with all these factors to impact how women and girls are treated in and by the justice system.
Authors Corinne C. Datchi and Julie R. Ancis collaborated in looking at not only data but personal stories to write their book, Gender, Psychology, and Justice. Ancis is Associate Vice President for Institute Diversity at the Georgia Institute of Technology. And has researched the area of multicultural competence and mental health. She is Past Chair of the Society of Counseling Psychology’s Section for the Advancement of Women. Datchi, Assistant Professor in the Professional Psychology and Family Therapy Department at Seton Hall University, is a private practice psychologist. She researches criminal justice populations.
