Criminality, Imprisonment, and Women's Rights in the 1990s

Vol. 17, No. 2 (1990)

This special issue is the first of two sequential issues on women, focusing on women as victims of social injustice and crimes, and the dialectic of struggle for women's rights. It covers many themes that offer glimpses both into the need for a new feminist theory and into organizing efforts that are being undertaken. Such themes include women in prison, violence against women, reproductive rights, economic status, equality and the law, human rights, right-wing ideology, and race and gender.
