about

How far have women progressed in the `unfeminine' career of policing? How far do they want to go and how far will their male colleagues and the public let them? Women in Control? is the first comparative work on women and law enforcement in Britain and the United States. Based on a series ofinterviews with female officers, it examines such issues as equal opportunities, women officers' attitudes to sex crimes and violence, and male hostility and harassment, and explores new ground by seeking to place these experiences in the social and historical context.
Frances Heidensohn is at Goldsmiths' College, University of London.
