Are "Sisters in Crime" Finally Being Booked? The Coverage of Women and Crime in Journals and Textbooks.
Wright, Richard A.
Teaching Sociology, v15 n4 p418-22 Oct 1987
Compares coverage of women and crime in sociology journals published from 1956-1960 and from 1976-1980 with coverage in criminology texts published from 1956-1965 and from 1976-1985. Data shows despite recent increases in publication of research in journals, criminology texts show little improvement in their coverage of women and crime. Concludes by discussing possible reasons why textbooks ignore these topics. (DH)
