Are men natural born criminals? Prison numbers don’t lie

“Any comment you make about gender is a generalisation,” says Tim Robertson, “but on the whole it is perfectly true to say that men commit crime and women help people out of crime,” through creating stable relationships and environments. “I think there’s a growing recognition in criminal justice circles about the role that families play” in rehabilitation.

. . . it is important to recognise one of the most universal and yet frequently overlooked trends in crime. If we can properly work out why the crime gender gap exists, why women are so much more likely to stay away from it, we might be able to use that knowledge to tackle the cycles of criminality more effectively.
