About the Book :

This book deals with issues of crime against women and some issues of women in crime.

The articles in the book are a comment on our social system and the space it allows women. Where stand to benefit from violent criminal image which may add to their sense of manhood women if so identified, on the contrary are striped of all feminist identity and made more vulnerable thereof.
