This far-reaching and groundbreaking issue of WSQ explores why women's issues in the field of criminal justice studies have become increasingly visible in recent years. It explores the impact of mandatory sentencing and the war on drugs on women; describes cases whereby prosecutors use existing drug trafficking and child abuse laws to prosecute women for maternal drug use; and examines the recent HIV epidemic facing incarcerated women.
