"A landmark in the study of female crime. Freda Adler's total reassessment of the scope, depth, and implications of female crime shows that the exception has become the rule as thousands of women are stepping across the imaginary boundary line which once separated crimes into 'masculine' and 'feminine' categories. She reveals the dramatic entrance of women into the major leagues of crime with top billing on the FBI's list of wanted criminals. Based on original research conducted over several years, she explains how the rising tide of female assertiveness has led women to break out of the traditional limits of prostitution and shoplifting into grand larceny, embezzlement, bank robbery, and sky-rocketing crimes of violence that are increasing at rates six and seven times as great as those for men."
