Sections 9, 10 and 11 in our Mallicoat textbook address the typical and not so typical offenses committed by women. Section 9, more specifically, begins to look at sentencing female offenders and the processing of women through our criminal justice system. For the purpose of this assignment we will take a look at those women who have been sentenced to death. Women are rarely sentenced to death in the United States and executions of women are even rarer. Researchers have suggested that women who are sentenced to death are often perceived as breaking gender norms.
