We usually do not take these women as emasculating, or oppressive towards men; although they can be, generally, they are not. In the book, One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest however, the female characters, with the exception of prostitutes and one of the nurses, are often portrayed as castrators or ‘ball cutters’.

We are failing the victims of domestic violence. Para.6) In my opinion, this is a good example of a women not taken seriously when it came to domestic violence, I believe when someone calls the higher authority in regards to any abuse being physically or mentally they should come to the home immediately, and I believe that men and women are both equal and the fact that the police officers failed to come to her house with her scared for her life shows that the police force has failed to stop any more forms of abuse.

Before the “get-tough” movement, women were generally averted from prison, receiving probation or other alternatives. They were also given shorter sentences than males, which I find to be extremely interesting.
They join groups they normally would not be apart of in the normal world so they have survive and have protection. Women also form in groups but usually not the same reason that males do.

Since there is drama females also become violent in prison.
