Abstracts

It was believed a few decades ago that crime was predominantly a male phenomena and the world of crime was mainly a man’s world. No doubt, such notions can be proved wrong. Women, like men, suffer from tensions, frustrations, jealousy, enmity and hatred which led to all sorts of crimes. The present paper focuses on dynamics of change that has been brought in the criminological field. In the present paper the issue of women committing offences can be located by showing the statistical data of women prisoners in the state of Jammu and Kashmir.
