CRIMINOLOGY FREDA ADLER PDF

What is clear is that women are committing certain crimes at a different level to men. Lombroso and Ferrero believed that the different crimes committed by men and women are a result of their physical difference. This approach has been used by different writers to explain why the overwhelming bulk of women do not offend and conversely why only a small minority do. It starts from the belief that women are innately different from men, with a natural desire to be caring and nurturing — both of which tend not to be values that support crime.

Dalton claimed that hormonal or menstrual factors can influence this minority of women to commit crime in certain circumstances.

Giordano and Cerkovich conducted studies in involving women between the ages of 17 and James and Thornton revealed from studies involving women prisoners that those incarcerated were primarily from impoverished and uneducated backgrounds.

Parsons claimed that women tend to take up the expressive role in a family — providing emotional support and caring for children as a full-time job, rather than seeking paid work. Due to this obligation, women are seen as having less opportunity to commit crime, being required to stay at home, caring for children. However, nowadays we cannot assume that such obligations are a deterrent against committing crime. New technologies such as the Internet enable everyone to commit crime.

A woman can be at home looking after her children, and, at the same time, she can be cheating innocent people on websites such as Ebay, or even committing identity theft or fraud. The idea of Joint Conjugal Roles and Dual Burdenmean that we cannot blame the lower figures of female criminality completely on the female role.

They are also more closely observed throughout their youth, more likely than males to be chaperoned. However, from a contemporary point of view, this is not always the case. Does a traditional female role as described by Parsons in limit female criminality? Hirschi claimed that the more attached an individual is to certain aspects of society attachment, commitment, involvement in deviant or criminal activities, and values , the less likely they are to risk it all by committing crime.

A woman with children has more at stake by committing crime, because if she is caught and sent to prison, her children will probably be put into care, or at least be very strongly affected by the loss of their mother. Without the conventional values anomie or with deviant influence, gender does not become such a factor. Also, even with children, we cannot assume that all women will feel so attached and committed to them that crime is not an option.
