But unfortunately there are still many women who are afraid to speak out. There are still far too many college students who are raped and too afraid to report it. There are still women who are being subjected to sexual harassment, sexual bullying, and sexual pressure every day but are unable to speak up and say "No!" And there are still women who are currently being sexually assaulted in their intimate relationships who are unable to report the abuse or to find the strength to walk away. Written specifically for women who are still afraid to speak up for themselves, especially women whose personal history of child sexual abuse or sexual assault, as an adult has wounded them so much they have lost their voice. I'm saying No! will help all women find their voice and their courage so they can better resist all forms of sexual violence." --

The gender of crime / by Britton, Dana M.; Jacobsen, Shannon K.,1965-author.; Howard, Grace,1988-author.;
Includes bibliographical references and index.A gender lens on criminology -- Gender and criminal offending -- Gender and the criminal justice system -- Gender and crime victimization -- Gender and work in the criminal justice system."[This book] introduces readers to how gender shapes our understanding of every aspect of crime--from defining what crime is to governing how crime is punished. The second edition ... [offers] new material throughout, including increased focus on the intersections of race, class, gender, and sexuality in crime and punishment; more attention to LGBTQ issues; additional coverage of gender and crime on college campuses; and more. This ... book illustrates how gender is central to the definition, prosecution, and sentencing of crimes, that it shapes how victimization is experienced and understood, and how it structures the institutions of the criminal justice system and the experiences of workers within that system. [The author] demonstrates that crime, victimization, and crime control are never generic--they are instead produced and experienced by gendered (and raced, and classed, and sexualized) actors within contexts of social inequality. This book highlights key concepts and encourages readers to think through a range of compelling real-life examples, from school violence to corporate crime."--
