Should women be treated in the same way as men in the criminal justice system?
What is the case for treating women differently from men?
In this seminar I will challenge some of the myths, muddles and misconceptions which have shadowed ideas about female offenders and their treatment. I will also examine whether or not there is a case for dealing with women differently from men in sentencing and criminal justice. Have women been treated more harshly or more leniently than men? Is there a special case for suggesting that women deserve a distinctive sort of treatment compared to men? Does this mean sentencing women differently? And in this context does "equality = difference"?
