Gender pathways to law breaking are dominated by females who had suffered from physical and/or sexual abuse, labeled as troublesome (juveniles), neglected, powerless to have agency.

Introduction Women in the Middle ages were treated as the second class members within their social class. They were taught to be obedient to their husbands and were expected to run the household and raise children. Their role in the society, however, was much more complex, while some medieval women achieved a high level of equality with men. In the Middle Ages women had a secondary role, coming second after men. Women’s life was divided between family, marriage and religion.
Single mothers are forced to be the head of the household, she must be a provider and nurturer, both traditional feminine and masculine roles are being played out. Some women feel that because they are married, they do not have the right to be free and hold their own thought. Hilary Clinton is married, and she ran for the presidency in 2018. Woman can find independence financially and emotionally while in a marriage. Women have the same rights as men do, it is a matter of gumption to fulfill the lifestyle that a woman would like to live.
Historically, women and men had to represent different tasks in the society. Due to this fact this fix roles are still anchored in the society. Men were mainly responsible for the financial livelihood and women for the households and family. These traditional roles shaped the gender stereotypes of women and men (Glick, P., Fiske, S., 2001, p 124). The research of the last decades on this topic is showing that the properties, which are attributed to both genders, can be assigned in two categories.
As a result, most women remained at home—caring for their children/husband and running the household. Additionally, women were expected to remain subservient to their fathers and husbands—influencing a degree of sexism. With that being said, Ibsen’s play, A Doll’s House, contains various sexist issues from the nineteenth century. In general, these concepts are depicted through the unequal nature of Torvald and Nora’s marriage. For the most part, one might think that the Helmers have a successful marriage; however, the successful marriage is only apparent at a superficial level.
