Policing and Gendered Justice provides a comprehensive analysis of women and policing in North America. It further enhances the body of knowledge on gender and policing by bridging the gap between theory and practice, and by using an empowerment approach to encourage discussion of the need to make ideological and structural changes and the need to promote social action and social change. Through a critical, feminist examination of gender and policing, and through a comparative analysis of women in policing in Canada and the United States, Corsianos offers a unique and original account of women police officers' experiences and the role that feminist analyses can play in providing greater justice."@en ;
