Abstract By taking social justice and human rights as a central focus, sharing experiences and research findings and identifying gaps in knowledge, this volume aims to make an innovative contribution to policy, practice, and to academic theory and analysis. The book is organized around key themes which are integral to the issues surrounding women, punishment and social justice. It highlights gendered dimensions of treatment and the effects of new penal policies, the relationship between punishment and social inequality and between social justice and human rights.
