Gender is a key social dimension in our society. Based on different access to power and social resources in society, gender impacts on crime, victimisation and criminal justice. In order to explore and understand changes in the nature and extent of female and male offending/victimisation, it is important to critically consider how gender, femininity, masculinity and intersections with other statuses, shapes crime, victimisation and consequently social and legal responses to both. Drawing on theoretical explanations, this unit examines the differences between men and women in crime rates and patterns of offending, victimisation, criminal justice responses and experiences.
