- Discuss the problems women face when working in the criminal justice system.
Some problems that women face in Policing is that her own coworkers and even the people she has to police don’t give the respect where its due. Also they are often subject to sexual harassment from coworkers. I rarely see this in my precinct but there have been instances where women police officers have contacted The office of equal opportunity to report harassment. It is unfortunate that some men can’t behave themselves when they see a woman.

Everything started in 1905 with the first police woman, in 1915 the international Association of Policewomen was formed, 1932 the IAP was disbanned, 1956the IAW was re-established, 1968 the woman police officer on patrol, 1972 title VII was expanded to include public agencies, 1985 the 1st woman chief of police in a major city, in 1994 1st AA woman chief of police in a major city, by 2000 13% of P.Os are women.
One of the major problems women face in the criminal Justice System, is that they are physically weaker than men and therefore some men might think that they weak in every other aspect. Also, because they are physically weaker than men, they might not be given the same jobs as men, I think gender might also influence in the types of jobs they are assigned.
