This book takes us inside the world of sport in Canada. It shines a light on the efforts of a wide range of players, from school girls fighting for the opportunity to play, to politicians and academics defining policy and developing theory. What they have in common is the courage to take chances, make claims and serve as role models. Women's full physical prowess can threaten assumptions about gender. The struggle to achieve equality in sport has been integral to the feminist mission of the past 50 years. This book contains an inspiring collection of stories from those on the front lines: athletes, coaches, educators, and activists who stuck their necks out to bring about change. To read these stories is to swell with pride over the victories, to empathize with those whose efforts were toppled by discrimination, and to become re-energized to confront collectively the many hurdles left to clear.

This collection is designed to deepen students' understanding about the essential role that gender plays in the commission of - and societal responses to - criminal behavior. "Rethinking Gender, Crime, and Justice" demonstrates how our notions of gender, race, and class influence both how society defines crime as well as how offenders commit crimes and are "treated" for their actions. The book includes a rich variety of national and global perspectives. It reviews the most up-to-date knowledge on gender and crime, women as offenders and victims, and the impact of gender on policing, corrections administration, and the courts. The essays in this collection are engagingly and accessibly written. They challenge students to question their assumptions about criminality, victimization, and how such situations are - and should be - approached. "Rethinking Gender, Crime, and Justice" covers issues that are frequently left out of traditional criminology texts.

"[B]rings together a collection of personal stories and critical reflections on the repercussions of doing social justice work in the field and in the university ... [A]ctivists, scholars, activist scholars, and public intellectuals share experiences of microaggressions, racial battle fatigue, and retaliation because of their identities, the people for whom they advocate, and what they study"--Page [xv] of Introduction.
