Psychosocial Influence of Convicted Women of Northern India

S.K. Bawa (Author)
Synopsis During the last few years a large number of incidences were reported through media regarding violence against women.  No doubt, it is on the rise though the socio-political and legal system has waked up.  Surprising, the increase in the crime by women is alarming now.  The women criminals of India show the same trend as in other countries, where most women are arrested for thieving, normally attributed to the fact that they have more opportunities that men to come into contract with shopping areas and such other places where thefts are easy to commit.  Women are arrested even for rioting, kidnapping, abduction and beggary.  Now their involvement in smuggling, white-collor crimes, and even terrorism has come to stay as a big poser.  The involvement of women in crime has also increased.  This book explores the reasons for which women are compelled to commit heinous crimes.  It endeavours to study the women convicts of Punjab, Delhi and Uttar Pradesh.  The book will prove an informative and most useful asset for students, research scholars and teachers in the field of psychology, sociology and women studies.  Policy planners and administrators will also find this book as an ideal reference tool.
