Girls, delinquency, and juvenile justice by Meda Chesney-Lind( Book )

Filling a tremendous gap in criminological literature, Girls, Delinquency, and Juvenile Justice focuses on the special problems delinquent girls face within our criminal justice system ... and exposes the system's failed attempts to apply male-oriented theories to the delinquency of females. Authors Meda Chesney-Lind and Randall G. Shelden include the relevance of classic theories of delinquency to female juveniles; an impressive amount of historical data and numerous contemporary studies to show that, often, mainstream theories and approaches don't work with female juveniles; and ten in-depth interviews with delinquent girls who share their experiences in the criminal justice system. In addition to greater theoretical development, this second edition has been thoroughly updated with a separate chapter on girls in gangs; important new statistics; and more information on the use of drugs and alcohol, drug-addicted babies, the impact of the newest legislation, and the relative success of alternative programs to incarceration

Invisible punishment : the collateral consequences of mass imprisonment by Meda Chesney-Lind( Book )

"Invisible Punishment is the first comprehensive examination of the hidden ramifications of conviction for inmates, ex-felons, their families and the communities they come from. Here, leading scholars and advocates -- including Jeremy Travis, Beth Richie, Bruce Western, Todd Clear, Paul Farmer, and Judith Greene -- bring to light a host of little-known "invisible punishments," from disenfranchisement and ineligibility for welfare benefits, public housing and employment opportunities, to price gouging by phone companies with prison contracts, gender imbalance in the inner-city neighborhoods from which prisoners are disproportionately drawn, and a generation of children with incarcerated parents. Together, the contributors to this book define the boundaries of a whole new field of inquiry in criminal justice. Book jacket."--Jacket
Fighting for girls : new perspectives on gender and violence( Book )

10 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 692 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Synopsis: Have girls really gone wild? Despite the media fascination with "bad girls," facts beyond the hype have remained unclear. Fighting for Girls focuses on these facts, and using the best data available about actual trends in girls' uses of violence, the scholars here find that by virtually any measure available, incidents of girls' violence are going down, not up. Additionally, rather than attributing girls violence to personality or to girls becoming "more like boys," Fighting for Girls focuses on the contexts that produce violence in girls, demonstrating how addressing the unique problems that confront girls in dating relationships, families, school hallways and classrooms, and in distressed urban neighborhoods can help reduce girls' use of violence. Often including girls' own voices, contributors to the volume illustrate why girls use violence in certain situations, encouraging us to pay attention to trauma in the girls' pasts as well as how violence becomes a tool girls use to survive toxic families, deteriorated neighborhoods, and neglectful schools
