Réflexions critiques sur la criminalité féminine

Abstract : Women account for 15 % of offenses' author, 10 % of sentenced persons and 3 % of prisoners. The female criminality is characterized as much by marginality as by atypicality. The women's criminal propensity would be tiny and limited to specific offenses. Despite the equality in criminal law between men and women, their criminalities don't merge. However, they are not completely separable since the criminogenic factors are similar regardless of the gender of the author is. If certain offenses are more specifically female and other offenses more specifically male, the nature of the criminality differs little. But this is not the case of the volume of criminality that differs significantly by gender. Unlike the criminal law illustrated by the indifference to the gender of the offenses' author, criminal response to criminality is not totally neutral. Women and men receive differential judicial and penitentiary treatment. The sex of the offender is therefore not an indifferent variable for the penalist because sex has an influence on the transition to the crime and the criminal response to criminality.
