    Realistically speaking, would a woman receive the same sort of punishment as a man for committing things like sexual harassment, rape, faking a rape, sexually exploiting a minor, domestic abuse etc.?

    If not, why not?

    What percentage of women are not charged compared to men? (Irrelevant if women commit less crime, referring to % of women vs % of men).

    Thanks.

    UK laws for sexual assault with penetration were only amended to include women as sex offenders in the year 2003. Previously, women who molested children were only charged with indecent assault.

    Mother gets seven years in incest case:

    'Had this being a case of a male person being convicted - a much longer sentence would be allowed under more recently amended legislation. A man convicted of incest can be jailed up to a maximum of a life sentence,' she said.

    Men Sentenced To Longer Prison Terms Than Women For Same Crimes, Study Says:

    If you're a convicted criminal, the best thing you can have going for you might be your gender.

    Starr also found that females arrested for a crime are also significantly more likely to avoid charges and convictions entirely, and twice as likely to avoid incarceration if convicted.

    Feminism supposedly calls for gender equality, but when it comes to the law suddenly they want to be treated as vulnerable victims.

    Feminist researchers find female sex offenders get slaps on the wrist:

    Many people have noted the stark difference in the sentences male and female sex offenders receive. Female offenders tend to walk away with probation, time served, or very low jail sentences compared to male offenders. Some have denied this bias, others have ignored, and others have rationalized it as extension of “Patriarchy.”


    Ironically, members of the latter group recently published a study about that issue. The study Sex-Based Sentencing: Sentencing Discrepancies Between Male and Female Sex Offenders published in Feminist Criminology confirms that female offenders do indeed receive lesser sentences than male offenders do.

    Women should not be sent to prison and should instead serve community sentences, according to a new report by the Women's Justice Taskforce.

    I like this bit especially:

    Women’s experiences as victims, witnesses and offenders are in many respects different to those of men,’ according to the Equal Treatment Bench Book.

    You've done a poll asking people's gender.

    I can believe this, although a study should be done into the precise reasons. I've also read that you are significantly less likely to be charged if you are attractive (that has nothing to do with gender, I'm simply pointing out that juries are flawed in many ways as well as gender).

    However, whatever 'facts' we bring up here, the only way to resolve it is with a proper scientific study, run by the government. I'd be happy to petition for that.

    Males Get Longer Sentences than Females for Same Crime:

    When Etta Ann Urdiales was murdered in Colorado, two completely different juries convicted two different people of the crime. Both juries believed there was only one murderer. One convicted Bobbie Hogan, a woman. The other convicted Jess Jacobs, a man. She got 10 years in prison. He was put to death.


    This case is just one example of the rampant discrimination men face in criminal courts throughout the United States.

    http://www.ifeminists.com/introducti...002/0423a.html


    So there were basically 2 suspects being convicted of a crime but only one was actually guilty, 1 male and 1 female due to a confusion. The male gets the death sentence...

    California woman sentenced to life in prison for chopping off ex-husband's penis, then grinding it in garbage disposal:

    Catherine Kieu, 50, of Garden Grove, drugged her ex-husband's tofu with sleeping pills and then tied him to a bed, crying out, 'You deserve it!'



    ...eligible for parole in 7 years...

    "I wonder if he cut off her breasts and mutilated them, would he be given the possibility of parole?"
    Nope, probably the death sentence!

    Even though there wasn't many details about the case, my heart sank to the pit of my stomach The thought of a woman comiting any kind of abuse is very hard to comprehend, especially to children she gave birth to

    The system definately needs upgrading, not just to make it equal for genders but also the tariff should fit the crime..our system is flawed in so many ways :mad: She should be hung..but for the sake of the children should she be named :confused:

    This comment pretty much sums it up:

    This is an example of traditional female privilege that feminism has held onto while blaming it on the imaginary patriarchy.

    Judges told: 'be more lenient to women criminals':

    Judges have been told to deal less severely with female criminals than men when determining how to sentence them.

    Female criminals are more likely to have mental health or educational difficulties and...
