This paper elaborates on feminist theory using Emerson's (1983) notion of holistic effects. The authors propose that the processing of juvenile female status offenders may vary systematically with the level of sex crimes in a community. This hypothesis is tested using a time series analysis of monthly status arrests in a Midwestern city. The models indicate a significant increase in female status arrests at one "intervention" point, but no changes were found for male status arrest levels. We conclude that heterogeneity of processing of female offenders within single jurisdictions is an important avenue for future theoretical and empirical exploration
