Doing justice, doing gender by Susan Ehrlich Martin( Book )

28 editions published between 1996 and 2007 in English and held by 1,397 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Doing Justice, Doing Gender: Women in Legal and Criminal Justice Occupations is a sociologically grounded analysis of women working in the traditionally male-dominated occupations of law, policing, and corrections. This Second Edition represents not only a thorough update of research on women in these fields but a careful consideration of changes in justice organizations and occupations over the past 40 years and their impact on women's work roles." "This is an excellent supplemental text for advanced undergraduate and graduate courses such as Women and the Criminal Justice System, Gender Justice, Gender and Work, Women and Work, and Sociology of Work and Occupations in departments of sociology, criminal justice, women's studies, and social work."--Jacket
Bootstrap dreams : U.S. microenterprise development in an era of welfare reform by Nancy C Jurik( Book )

14 editions published between 2005 and 2018 in English and Undetermined and held by 721 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Declines in real wages, increases in the number of poor families, and cutbacks to welfare and other safety-net programs have stimulated the popularity of microenterprise development programs (MDPs). These programs typically offer training and loans to individuals seeking to operate very small businesses. MDPs are often presented as a path to the self-sufficiency that comes with entrepreneurship and as an example of the success of market-based alternatives to government programs. In Bootstrap Dreams, Nancy C. Jurik analyzes the origins and maturation of these programs in the United States.Based on a national sample of fifty programs and an eight-year case study of one in particular, this is a rare book about microenterprise development. Jurik understands the positive social mission of MDPs, but she is not blind to the problems that they encounter. Jurik's clear perception of potential difficulties and her keen ability to place the microenterprise movement in the larger context of welfare reform and globalization make Bootstrap Dreams a valuable book

Analysis of the media constructions of justice, gender and police work in 'Prime Suspect', a British television film series starring Helen Mirren as fictional London policewoman Jane Tennison. The authors argue that the show acts as a vehicle for progressive moral fiction--fiction that gives voice to victim experiences, locates those experiences within a larger social context and transcends traditional legal definitions of justice for victims. They state that the show offers insights into ways that individuals might challenge oppressive social and organizational arrangements
