Abstract:

The known or suspected dimensions of officially acted-upon involvement of women and girls in crime and delinquency should be reviewed, in order to sense whether the available information offers guidelines for a realistic policy in handling the female offender throughout the length and breadth of the legal and correctional process. The outstanding research studies on the female offender, although extremely scarce, should also be reviewed to see whether they contain any guidelines for policy. In developing a rationale for effective, justifiable handling of the officially acted-upon female offender, it is important to develop a totally integrated policy all the way along the line of the leg-correction procedures from arrest to parole, which policy is just not concentrated on the terminal phases of these procedures, such as probation, institutionalization, and release.
