The fascination with female violence: are women becoming more like men?
1)The claims
Stephanie Rangel case (stab six times by Melissa who was jealous of her). The
article what has changed is the intensity and the perpetrators. All of this started
in 1997, it marks to more recent concern about teenage girl violence. The
documentary by CBC, nasty girl. Very tempting to dismiss this media hype over
girl violence, but also academics were making the same kinds of claims about
violence in teenage girls.
For over a century, academics have been issuing warning about female crime, and
the unintended consequence or emancipation and womens liberation. As women
become more like men, an inevitable consequence is that women will move also into
the ranks of criminals.
Something distinct in 1997 is that it was more focused on teenage girls.
2)The evidence
The emergence of the nasty girl in Canada the rate between 1974 and 2008, there
is a lot of fluctuation. But no consistent evidence that women violence is on the rise.
What about the rate relative to male rate. Ounce again no trend in young girl
involvement in homicide is relative to the rate for young boys. Girls involvement in
homicide has no increased in Canada in an absolute sense or relative to boys in
Canada over the past 35 years.
Rate of girls for serious violence show differently, yes there an increase in the 1990s
but since then has declines. For minor assault we see that form about 1995 onward
there has been a decrease.
Canadian concerns about girl violence have been driving by statistic from the states!
But still are they anymore accurate then the claim made in Canada? According to
criminologist they are not! The rate at which girls have been arrested has increased
however the scholars say that arrests are not the best measure. The data from
victimization survey has shown no increase in girl violence. The self-report data also
show that girls are no more likely to engage in violence now then before.
The attitude of the police has changed; they look at women more then before, Zero
tolerance and mandatory arrest policies So you scoop deeper in the offender pool
The rise in girls violence is more of a social construction then empirical evidence
