This paper explores feminist criminological approaches and contemporary debates around gender and justice. We will engage in a critical exploration of theoretical and policy debates in criminology and in the criminal justice system, with an explicit focus on issues of gender and gendered violence. We will explore critical criminological approaches and feminist perspectives, using these to study a range of issues: sex work, trafficking, prisons, restorative justice and online harassment.
