About

Overview

Some women are truly criminals, committing crimes of robbery, homicide, embezzlement, and kidnapping. Others, like activists Angela Davis and Dolores Huerta, are called criminals but may actually be victims of circumstance, prejudice, or politics. What, if anything, do all these women have in common? What influences them to act as they act—and society to react as it does?
