Organization(s): Justice Clearinghouse

Aug 22, 2019
1:00pm – 2:00pm (1 hour)
Time Zone: Eastern

The vast majority of sexual violence and domestic violence offenders are heterosexual men. However, some offenders are women. What are the primary motivating factors and issues at work in the lives of women who commit sexual violence or domestic violence? How do women's and men's "pathways" to crime differ? How might the different life experiences of female offenders affect our approaches to prosecution, incarceration, and rehabilitation? How can we address the blurred lines between female victims and offenders? In this presentation, attendees will learn about basic rates of female offending, the primary pathways of women and girls into crime and the justice system, and strategies to effectively work with female offenders.
