International prison population statistics have found that the female prison population is increasing at a faster rate than the male prison population. Research has confirmed that, in the majority of countries, the male imprisonment rate is predominantly larger than that of the female imprisonment rate, however this does not apply to indigenous women within Australia. Overwhelming research shows that the imprisonment rate for indigenous women within Australia has increased at a significantly faster rate compared to indigenous males, most clearly highlighted through the general trends in prison rates within the last decade. This essay will discuss how the presence of indigeneity plays a key role in explaining the disparity between male and female imprisonment rates, further explaining why indigenous women are incarcerated at significantly highly rates. Moreover, there are numerous sociological and criminological theories, which provide an explanation for the disparity of male and female imprisonment rates.
Introduction This study (Ball et al., 2008) aimed to measure effects of genetic and environmental influences on the subgroups involved in childhood bullying, (bullies, bully-victims and victims). Victimisation and bullying reports from teachers and mothers were compiled from a representative group of families with twins. Model-fitting was used to correlate the relative influence of genetics and environments with involvement in the bullying subgroups. 12% of children were victims, 13% were bullies, and 2.5% were bully-victims. Genetics accounted for 73% of the variation in victimisation and 61% of the variation in bullying, environmental factors not shared between the twins explaining the remainder.

According to an article by the Guardian (Wahlquist, 2016) “59% of all children in detention in Australia are Indigenous, compared with 40% of children in Canadian youth jails” (para 4). As we can see, there aren’t many differences in the way the justice system in both countries deals with the Aboriginal youth. Although Canada has made efforts to address this issue, in Australia there still a number of changes that need to be made. If we refer to an article by Aljazeera (Kurmelovs, 2015) “At any given time, one in 77 Aboriginal boys will be detained by Western Australia's criminal justice system” (para 1). We can notice that the only issue currently in question is why hasn’t Canada and Australia solved its issues of the over-representation of Aboriginal youth in custody and in
