Women as "Victims" and as "Resisters": Depictions of the Oppression of Women in Criminology Textbooks.
Wright, Richard A.
Teaching Sociology, v23 n2 p111-21 Apr 1995
Reports on a study of the depiction of women in 54 college criminology textbooks published between 1956 and 1992. Finds that, although recent textbooks have made important strides about discussing women as victims, they say far less about women's ability to resist oppression by words and deeds. (CFR)
