Criminal Women. A History of Female Criminality

Female criminality has existed throughout the ages: from the biblical Judith who beheaded Holofernes, to the French revolutionary Charlotte Corday who stabbed Jean-Paul Marat, to Valerie Solanas who assassinated Andy Warhol. Why do we know so little about them? Does criminology have a gender bias? The editor of the volume »Criminal Women« (2023), Jadwiga Kamola, and author and activist Tayo Awosusi-Onutor discuss women criminals and female criminalization. They particularly look at the situation of marginalized women during the Nazi era and in the present.

With the kind support of the Instituto Cervantes and the Women in Europe Foundation/ TuWas Foundation for Solidarity.
