This subject will provide students with a comprehensive study of issues relating to sex and gender in the criminal justice system. Students will engage with key theories of feminism, postmodernity, critical criminology, intersectionality, power and queer theory. Concepts of gender, sexuality, masculinity and femininity will be critically analysed. Relationships between gender, law, sexuality, policing, policy, politics, crime and media will be explored. These relationships will be examined through topics such as discrimination, harassment, pornography, sex work, trafficking, abortion, sexual violence, domestic violence, workplace rights, and security.
