Gender-based discrimination is prevalent throughout the criminal justice system. Although, this discrimination surfaces in many different ways, often dependent on a person's background or socioeconomic status. During this class, students will explore various theories on the causes of gender-based crime and the characteristics that make a crime gender-based. Along with examining current solutions, students will probe the context and evolution of laws and policies around gendered crime and justice.
