    Until recently, gender stereotypes have shaped the ways in which society views female offenders, often as individuals incapable of criminal activity or extreme violence. When Women Offend: Crime and the Female Perpetrator sheds light on the complex world of female offending, demonstrating women’s capability to behave aggressively and violate gender expectations.

    Readers learn about the influence of gender stereotypes on perceptions of female offending, as well as about common myths associated with female deviance. They are introduced to criminological theory and explore psychological, developmental, sociological, and biological theories through a feminist lens. Dedicated chapters outline various types of female offending, from serial killing to Munchausen by proxy, filicide to sex offending, domestic homicide to terrorism, and more. Each of these chapters includes real-life cases and an exploration of motives and social factors. The book features excerpts from interviews with female offenders.

    When Women Offend is ideal for courses in criminology and criminological theory, especially those focused on the female offender.

    Stephanie Scott-Snyder is a forensic mental health clinician. She has provided court-mandated therapy to offenders, conducted risk assessments, worked closely with law enforcement, and provided crisis intervention to victims of violent crime. She is an adjunct faculty member at two NYC metro area colleges, where she teaches courses in the psychology of law, forensic psychology, adolescent development, and social psychology. Prior to her work in the field of forensic mental health, Scott-Snyder was a writer/producer and creative director for network television, often focusing on police dramas and documentary-style crime shows.
