One way gender has significantly organized elements of social life is around the family structure and the role of the father/husband. He is typically portrayed as the provider and hence a successful male is one who provides for his wife/offspring. A failure as a male is one who does not provide. This contributes to the likelihood of crime in two ways. A.) a male unable to use legal means to provide would see illegal means as a viable alternative. B.) A male may work too much to provide the type of life necessary to legally succeed and pay his fair share and hence be absent from the home and not providing an authority figure to keep unruly offspring inline.

This upheaval and change in law has contributed to the likelihood of crime in the workplace such as harassment, sexual harassment, FMLA violations and more. It has even led to contradictory laws.
