Ch. 7 Gender Friday, September 30, 2016 7:17 AM The trend has been a large increase in robbery, larceny theft, and property crime for women. The property crime decreased more for boys than for girls and a much bigger increase in robbery. While boys engage in more delinquency, girls seem to be catching up. History; early on female delinquency was not studied and the early thoughts were very simple and a bit shallow Masculinity Hypothesis: the thought that girls who commit crime are similar to boys in biological and psychological characteristics. Look and act more masculine Chivalry (Paternalism) Hypothesis: Crimes by women are lower due to more police leniency in treating female deviants Differences Socialization; girls are taught to be more home and family and passive, boys are to be more independent and be active Cognitive; Males are better at spatial and mathematical, females are better at communication and verbal skills Personality; boys tend to gain self-esteem as they get older and vice versa for girls Emotional; girls are generally more open on their feeling, to show empathy. Boys hold it in, toughen up, show anger. Gender-Schema Theory: during development kids learn the gender related social practices of a culture and build an identity based on that. Gender Similarities Hypothesis: The differences are actually smaller than thought. Simply dissing people could lead to shooting, crazy girl was externalizing the anger of family leaving her. Some masculine theory from the father. Shy girl being a warrior on the street, to be strong on the outside. Precocious Sexuality: Experimenting with sex early in adolescence Liberal Feminism: This thought says that girls are less involved in delinquency because they have fewer opportunities to do so. Critical Feminism: girls are delinquent comes from boys being superior and an effort by men to control girls sexuality. Honor Killing: violence against women comes from the perception of a family's honor is insulted by thought to be sexual misconduct by the women Power-Control Theory: gender differences in deviance comes from SES and economic conditions that affect the family life at home. Egalitarian Families: Equal power between Mom and Dad so the girls have the same deviance behaviors as the boys in the family.
