Heilbrun, Alfred B., Jr.; Heilbrun, Mark R.
Psychology of Women Quarterly, v10 n3 p240-51 Sep 1986
Examines the possible impact of the feminist movement upon criminal justice decisions relating to women. One body of data confirmed a trend away from indiscriminate leniency in the punishment of female criminals during the women's movement. The second set of data disclosed that an increased seriousness was accorded to the crime of rape as feminism became more influential. (Author/KS)
