Why Women Are Likely to Commit Victimless Crimes
Introduction
In the contemporary world, people understand what a crime consists of, and what it

commits the act who is impacted to the level of being a victim (Levy, Cohen-Louck & Herzog,
2021). The concept of law is that commission of something prohibited by law is illegal. Some
examples of victimless crimes include drug dealing, prostitution, adultery, indecency, lewdness,
gambling, and seduction. For several reasons, research shows that women are more likely to

that women are more socialized in a way that deters them from other types of crimes. There is an
increase in female crimes due to deviation from this position. Most researchers attribute
