Summary
  • "Judith A. Allen's study of crimes involving Australian women since 1880 is based primarily on previously unpublished archival documents from criminal and divorce courts, coroner's offices, prisons and child welfare institutions. These records show that there has been a steady streaming of offenders and complainants out of criminal justice and into alternative agencies. Infanticide, prostitution, and sexual and other assaults involving women have been, it appears, much more prevalent than court records show. Allen argues that it is because these practices are connected with sexual relationships between men and women that they have attracted little official attention from police and other criminal justice agencies. These crimes involving women and their sexual relationships with men have been shrouded in a secrecy which has not only created a false perception of their incidence but has disguised their significance in the processes of social change which have occurred over the last century. Allen redresses the balance by providing both a detailed study of criminal acts involving women since 1880 and a feminist analysis of their social and political significance. This study is a valuable addition to the history of the sexes, in which a number of developments are of recurring importance: the rapid drop in the birthrate; increasing rates of divorce and separation; the widening of paid work options for women; and the 'sexualization' of culture during the twentieth century." -- BOOK JACKET./​usr/​bin/​ksh @
