Something more to consider: women are more apt to be given breaks than men,
when it comes to crime and prison sentences. Generally speaking, to be
sure, but "explanations" for why women turn to crime are considered more
often than for men (i.e., the assumption being that if women do wrong it
must be because they're victims of something or other, while men - because,
after all, they're men" - are responsible for their crimes, period).
