On the Margins of the Malestream (or, They Still Don't Get It, Do They?): Feminist Analyses in Criminal Justice Education


This paper is a critical review of the Fall 1992 issue of the Journal of Criminal Justice Education (JCJE), which focused on women in criminal justice education. The review concentrates on three educational areas: curriculum, pedagogy, and the campus climate for students and faculty. Feminism has had a clear effect in each of these areas, but it has not been enough to transform criminology/criminal justice education so that gender is a central organizing theme. Feminist criminology/criminal justice education seems to remain at the margins of the “male-stream.”
