1 Katie Fall 2018 Research Proposal Outline 1. Introduction Section a. Gender and the Death Penalty: Are men and women treated equally when it comes to the death penalty? b. The state has the authority to kill its citizens when it deems them not fit for the community. c. Are the courts more lenient when sentencing women who are convicted of crimes? The researcher hypothesized that the courts will show increased leniency towards women in comparison to men. d. It will make use of the elaboration model to elaborate on the empirical relationship between the the variables so that the researcher can interpret this relationship. e. This paper will discuss the data in regards to women and male death penalty and how it should be interpreted in regards to the way each gender is treated. 2. Literature Review a. Rapaport, E. (1991). The death penalty and gender discrimination. Law and Society Review, 367-383. i. Research question - it is widely supposed that women murderers are chivalrously spared the death sentence 2 ii. Theoretical Framework - This article argues that women are represented on contemporary US death rows in numbers commensurate with the infrequency of female commission of those crimes which our society labels sufficiently reprehensible to merit capital punishment. iii. Research Design iv. Sampling v. Independent and Dependent Variable Measurement vi. Key Finding - this belief that women are spared is misleading b. Shapiro, A. (2000).

Research Design -McCleskey v. Kemp iv. Sampling v. Independent and Dependent Variable Measurement vi. Key Finding - A violation of the Equal Protection Clause on the basis of sex is a transgression of the Fourteenth Amendment, which adds to the overall arbitrary nature of the system. c. Shatz, S. F., & Shatz, N. R. (2012). Chivalry is not dead: murder, gender, and the death penalty i. Research question - In prosecutors’ decisions to seek death and juries’ decisions to impose it, is chivalry a factor? ii. Theoretical Framework 3 iii. Research Design iv. Sampling v. Independent and Dependent Variable Measurement vi. Key Finding - Women guilty of capital murder were far less likely than men to be sentenced to death, and defendants who killed women were far more likely to be sentenced to death than defendants who killed men. d.

Research question - why women have received such favored treatment since the purposes allegedly served by capital punishment seemingly are equally applicable to both sexes ii. Theoretical Framework iii. Research Design - 49 cases iv. Sampling 4 v. Independent and Dependent Variable Measurement vi. Key Finding - Only eleven (1.1 percent) of the 1004 total executions from 1973 through 2005 have been of female offenders. This execution pace has changed recently, with only one (0.2 percent) of the 434 executions from 1973 to 1997 being a female offender. f. Summary of Existing Research - There is a huge consensus that women have a favorable experience when it comes to getting the death penalty. 3. Methodology a. Hypothesis - The researcher hypothesized that the courts will show increased leniency towards women in comparison to men. b. Describe the research design - narrow down the three time of murders that are death eligible: Predatory murder, murder that hinders or threatens the enforcement of law or other governmental functions, and murder that evinces excessive violence or brutality. c. Sampling i. Sampling design - Purposive Sampling ii. Population - Men and women who have been sentenced to death penalty or life imprisonment iii. Unit of Analysis iv. Target sample size- 2,500 men and 2,500 women d. Measurements i. Intro 5 ii. Dependant Variable 1. Equality of getting the death penalty iii. Independent Variable 1. The Gender 2. Man Vs Woman iv. Control Variables 1. Similar Crimes v. Limitations 1. Causality is not determined in this experiment. The focus is on the relationship between gender and the death penalty. 2. The research data is limited to death penalties in American and other Western countries 6 Reference List Rapaport, E. (1991). The death penalty and gender discrimination.

Abstract

DEATH PENALTY

2

One of the arising social issues is having the number of men who have faced the death
sentence being higher than the number of women who have faced the death penalty. The court of
law has the authority to order for the execution of members of the society who are not very much
fit for the community. This depends on the type of crime that they commit and whether it is
worth a death penalty. Considering the number of death penalties that have been executed on
women, since the year 1976, there are only sixteen women who have faced the death penalty in
the United States either through the lethal injection or electrocution. The number of men is
higher compared to the number of women. The actual execution of women offenders is very rare
not only in the United States but in the whole country at large. The executions of women in the
United States generally are 3.6 % of the total executions that have been confirmed including the
colony times.
Introduction
The issue of the gender and the death penalty is undeniably one of the biggest issues that
arise on the system of the law. The biggest question is, are men and women treated equally when
it comes to the death penalty? Is there a gender bias or justice occurs equally to both parties?
These questions can be answered but the court of law seems to be more lenient when it comes to
sentencing women who have committed crimes compared to when sentencing men. Men through
research seem to be facing the death penalty more than women. There are different arguments on
why women are favored by the justice system and these include the fact that women tend to
commit fewer crimes when compared to men. Mostly, the justice system feels that the crimes
committed by men are more worth the death penalty than those committed by women.
Considering all the factors on how one ends up getting the death penalty, one can see that women
are usually favored. The manner in which the murder was committed also plays a great role in

sentencing. There is information from the Death Penalty Information Center has stated that
when considering murderers, the justice system tends to see women from a different perspective
compared to men. The chivalrous society has seen women as the ones who are always acting
under influence, are fragile emotionally and the argument arises that they should not be held
accountable the same way as men are. The belief sees women as if they are sad and weak and it
attempts to explain why there is a difference in the death sentence compared to men.
Literature Review
Sampling
The sampling method used in the research is the purposive sampling. This included own
judgment on different cases and picking some of the cases in order to come up with data which is
reliable on the process of research. This is mainly through online resources.
