Letter from the Editor- Spring 2015

Dear DWC Members,

Happy (belated) new year!  It was wonderful to see everyone at the 2014 DWC events at the American Society of Criminology meetings in San Francisco.  It was great to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the DWC with some new and old friends (not that ANY of us are old!).

For those graduate students reading the newsletter, don't forget that the deadline for the Larry J. Siegel Fellowship for the Study of Gender and Crime and the Feminist Criminology Graduate Research Fellowship is March 1, 2015!  Want more information?  Go to to get all the details.

Thank you again to all the wonderful associate editors who make this newsletter happen.  Since it is the start of the new year, I want to recognize each of the associate editors and thank them for the work that they do.  You should too!  Send them emails to let them know that you value their work.  Without them, this newsletter would just be a nice note from me, and who wants to read that?
