Women and Punishment

March 28 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Historically, various forms of punishment options have been used when addressing female offenders. The reasoning for the various alternatives is complex; however, analyzing this issue within the framework of intersectionality brings to light problems related to punishment choices and the ever-increasing rate of female imprisonment.

Come share in this compelling dialogue with Dr. Shauntey James to understand the interlocking nature of females and punishment.

This presentation will be a hybrid event. For a link to the virtual event, please send an email to LydiaBloomPL@gmail.com. The link will not be published publicly.


Dr. Shauntey James received her Ph.D. from Western Michigan University in 2000 in sociology with an emphasis in criminology, criminal justice, and feminist theory. Dr. James received her J.D. in 2014 from Thomas Cooley Law School.

Her current crime fiction book is Murder: Secrets Among Colleagues but you should also pick up her book co-authored with Dr. Alana Van Gundy entitled The History, Evolution, and Current State of Female Offenders: Recommendations. Presently, her research focuses on women, gender identification, and sexual assault.
