Women in Criminal Justice: True Cases (Paperback)
Women in Criminal Justice is a book where women judges and criminal lawyers tell of cases that they have found particularly challenging. Some were disquieting, perplexing or had surprising turns, many are high-profile, and many continue to have interesting social or personal effect. Unique to this book, are distinctly women's perspectives, and many chapters deal with sexual assault, Indigenous, child protection and motherhood, mental health, LGBTQ+, immigration, terrorism, and other vitally pertinent issues of the decade.
