The bias against women is criminal

Jack Houghton of the Daily Telegraph writes:
Sexist police and judges are to blame for a sharp rise in women being arrested and sentenced for violent crimes.
Sydney University associate professor Dr Rita Shackel and Anna Kerr, principal solicitor at the Feminist Legal Clinic argued in a law journal article “the police and judiciary would appear to be delivering equality with a vengeance”.
The pair said that the number of women being arrested for domestic violence offences was increasing five times faster than male figures, blaming the increase on “pervasive systemic gender bias.”
