I'm studying criminology for a Masters programme in Australia and have spent some time searching the web for information on feminist contribution to the understanding/theories/practice of criminology but have come up empty handed. There just doesn't seem to be anything out there!! Could you suggest any sites that may be able to help? I have a two month old daughter and find it hard to get to a library for any length of time. Any suggestion is appreciated.

Regards, Annette


Thanks so much for your note to FEMINIST.COM. I have a few suggestions of where you can go to learn more about the feminist approach to criminology:

1.) The National Women's Law Center:
1616 P Street NW
Washington, DC 20036
(202) 328-5160; fax (202) 328-5137

2.) I have in front of me the current issue of Sojourner: The Women's Forum, which is devoted to: "Living Behind Bars: Special Issue on Women in Prison".

3.) There is also a group called National Clearinghouse in Defense of Battered Women and they do tons of research in this area. Their address is 125 S. 9th St., Suite 302, Philadelphia, PA 19107; phone (215-351-0010), fax (215-351-0779).
