Females Under the Law--"Protected" but Unequal
Armstrong, Gail
Crime and Delinquency, 23, 2, 109-120, Apr 77

Sometimes this discrimination on basis of sex works in favor of females before the law; most of the time it works against them. Statutes and sentencing practices incorporate a double standard of morality. (Author)
