Sex and Theories of Deviance: Toward a Functional Theory of Deviant Type-Scripts
Harris, Anthony R.
American Sociological Review, 42, 1, 3-16, Feb 77
Asserts that the continuing failure to consider women has critically weakened contemporary criminal deviance theory, examines the major paradigms in criminal deviance, argues that the inclusion of sex as a variable has more or less disastrous consequences for those paradigms, and argues that the primary purpose of labeling theory is to detect "true" rates of deviance.
