Bibliography on Female Offenders

Blogger T sent this to me a few weeks ago. I meant to post it earlier, but it slipped my mind. Below is a sample of the list:

Below is a listing of various research studies, articles, and publications about the issue of female offenders and their victims. I am hoping to maintain this list and add to it as I find more studies. I would ask ask that if anyone has some material that is not listed to please feel free to send it to me or post it in the comments section of this post and I will add it.
