9780070004160: Sisters in Crime: The Rise of the New Female Criminal (English and Multilingual Edition)

"Women are committing more crimes - and more violent ones - than ever before. And this crime wave is growing at an alarming rate. In this landmark in the study of female crime, Freda Adler overcomes a decade of resistance from traditional theorists, police chiefs, judges, and probation officers to take account of new social facts. based on several years of original research, this is a total reassessment of the scope, depth, and implications of female crime; it shows that thousands of women are stepping across the imaginary boundary line that once separated crimes into 'masculine' and 'feminine' categories. Dr. Adler explains how female assertiveness has led women to break out of the traditional limits of prostitution and shoplifting into the major leagues of crime, including crimes of violence, which are for women increasing at rates six and seven times as great as those for men...."
