Development and Female Crime: A Cross-National Test of Alternative Explanations.
Steffensmeier, Darrell; And Others
Social Forces, v68 n1 p262-83 Sep 1989
Interpol data from 69 countries indicate that the relationship between female percentage of arrests and national development status is mediated by opportunity for "female" consumer crimes and formalization of social control (which makes female crime more visible), but not by gender equality or female economic marginality. Contains 49 references. (SV)
