The “Feminine-maternal” or the Criminal Treatment of Women

The under-representation of women in criminal statistics has seldom
been studied by sociologists. Yet, it masks the gendered nature of
normative systems. In this regard, prisons offer a perfect field of
study, provided they are not considered as autonomous institutions
distinct from the broader social universe, but rather as a magnifying
glass which informs us about the screening operated by the criminal
channels and, more generally, about social relations. As single-sex
spaces, they clearly highlight the relationship between social order
and gendered order, and allow us to grasp the gendered norms which
preside over the construction of feminine deviance beyond the penitentiary
system.
