The DWC Executive Council, with the support of the Feminist Criminology editorial board has selected Dr. Kristy Holtfreter as the newest editor of Feminist Criminology beginning June 2018.
Dr. Holtfreter is a Professor and Master's Program Director in the School of Criminology and Criminal Justice at Arizona State University, as well as a Faculty Affiliate in the Women and Gender Studies Program.
