Description

Gender-specific programming has emerged in the last few years as an increasingly important issue, particularly here in the United States. This is due in part to the fact that the number of girls entering the juvenile justice system has been growing exponentially. Criminal justice practitioners continue to conduct research to understand this phenomenon and develop ways to address these issues. Gender-specific programming was heavily influenced by the language of the 1992 reauthorization of the Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Act. This act prohibited gender bias and ensured that female juvenile offenders would have access to the same services as their male counterparts.

Prepare a 3-page paper, citing a minimum of two academically verified references, describing the historical development of gender-specific programming for female offenders. Explain the impact these programs have on female offenders and point out why it is important to ensure that women receive services specific to their gender's needs.
