dc.description.abstractThis chapter provides an overview of developments in feminist criminology in Australia and New Zealand. It considers the field's different feminist epistemological commitments of empiricism, standpointism, and deconstruction. Specifically, it summarises key concepts and foci in feminist criminological research, tracing its longstanding empirical strengths. The chapter documents criticisms of its blind spots and attempts at remedying these shortcomings. In doing so, the author discusses the distinct features of feminist criminological perspectives in Australia and New Zealand. The chapter also explores how scholars are increasingly attentive to intersectional, postcolonial, and transnational dimensions of feminist criminological concerns, acknowledging the challenges and tensions of these efforts.
