Female crime and deviance are a continuum of behaviors among girls and women in diverse social settings. Through research findings, novels, drama, journals and biography, film, popular media, and policy documents, the course explores the variability of definitions and labels that identify girls and women within the larger social context. Using micro and Macro theoretical frameworks, the course addresses the broad range of female forms of deviance and crime: historic and contemporary, individual and collective.
