This article explains exactly what women are expected to know and dasa corrections officer in an all male facility. It also explains the attitude needed to stay focused enough to successfully do their jobs. Temkin, Jennifer. Rape and the Criminal Justice System, The Internationals Library of Criminology, Criminal Justice and Penology, 1995. This book was a list of several articles printed around the world that dealt with every aspect of rape. Some of the issures range from types of rape, types of women usually involved with rape, how women officers deal with the situation more calmly than men, the legal aspect, and how women react and are treated to get over the incident. As stated earlier, women have always been looked upon as the weaker sex. These are just a few of the many books and articles readers can use, men or women to dispel this notion that women are not suitable for a position or situation that has normally been dominated by men. We must first acknowledge the fact that women are capable to hold these positions then and only their will we as a society accept women in control. BibliographyBoston . Rafter, Nicole.
