The criminal activity of women in selected criminological theories – cultural gender contexts
The criminal activity of women in selected criminological theories – cultural gender contexts Abstract: The aim of this text is to reconstruct selected criminological theories. I consciously ignore concepts of a different profile, focusing on gender as a key category. The aim of my deliberations is not to present a comprehensive vision of the criminological concepts
of female crime, but only a certain portion of it. The content of the narrative is therefore partly representative of the problem presented, and in further explorations I will attempt to take into account theoretical perspectives in other trends related to studies on femininity (gender studies).
