About the Author

KATHERINE VAN WORMER is a Professor in the Department of Social Work at the University of Northern Iowa. She has also taught in the departments of sociology and criminal justice. Van Wormer is the author of fourteen books and numerous book chapters and journal articles. Among her scholarship awards, she has won the McKay Faculty Research Award, the Faculty Excellence Award, and the Outstanding Scholarship Award.


"This book is a comprehensive, compelling text in which Katherine van Wormer artfully addresses areas that are absent from the literature on criminal justice and the helping professions as they relate to the special needs of girls and women offenders... Noting that 'a paradigm shift is in the wind,' the book is brilliantly constructed as it underscores the contradictions and paradoxes within the penal system... The author's writing style is a notable strength as she convincingly advocates for a multidimensional, gender-sensitive approach while she systematically dissects the micro- and macrolevel dynamics that affect policy, programs, and research on female offenders." ( Affilia: Journal of Women and Social Work , February 2012)
