From the e-Activity, discuss whether or not you believe that a double standard exists in the adjudication and treatment among male and female juvenile delinquent offenders. Provide a rationale for your response.
The study of juvenile delinquency has focused primarily on conduct disorder and aggression in males, while relatively little attention has been paid to females who commit delinquent acts.Understanding and treatment of female and male delinquency could be enhanced through the adoption of a gender-integrated theory of delinquency that is informed by the comprehensive study of developmental, psychological, and social-ecological determinants.
