Example text

Cohen (1955), one of the first to propose a link between masculinity and crime among working-class boys, nevertheless held that women and girls had other priorities: For the adolescent girl as well as for the adult woman, relationships with the opposite sex and those personal qualities which affect the ability to establish such relationships are central in importance. . Dating, popularity with boys, pulchritude, “charm,” clothes and dancing are preoccupations so central and so obvious that it would be useless pedantry to document them.

In this context the rape and battering of women could be understood not as the actions of a few pathological men but rather as the logical outcome of mainstream norms and values about masculinity and femininity (for early discussions on this theme, see Brownmiller 1975; Dworkin 1979; and Griffin 1981).

To take a simple example, consider the statistics for homicide. Women’s arrest rate for homicide in 2009 was 1 per 100,000, with 1,020 total arrests. To produce a 100 percent increase, to a rate of 2, it follows that 1,020 more women would have to be arrested. Men’s arrest rate for homicide in 2009 was 7; 8,755 men were arrested. To produce a 100 percent increase, to a rate of 16, 8,755 additional men would need to be arrested. Exactly the same percentage increase in rates requires that almost eight times as many men would have to be arrested as women.
