Sexual offenses committed by women are likely underestimated and under-reported. According to Figure 2 we notice that women offenders are typically victims of previous abuse, whether it is physical, sexual, or emotional. Women who were hospitalized with prior psychiatric issues were found to be likelier than men to commit sexual offenses. We notice that women were found to also be more likely to have prior suicide attempts. The only instance where men have a greater percentage is the substance use history.

So, they force them to have sex and afterward they laugh at them because they won’t listen to them and won’t believe them. Which in some of the cases they believe it and don’t report it at the moment and when they report it to the police and to the company it’s too hard to get evidence. Like in the case of one of the janitors, she reported what happened to her too
This can be a demeaning statement because it gives the authority to the male, letting them speak however and about whomever rather than the female. By this statement Frieda is giving the acceptance that men can be allowed to degrade women and make sexual comments because of their gender when in actuality that is wrong. If the statements continue it could potentially get out of hand leading an alpha domince of who can get the most women, in which can lead to harassment or even as far as rape for example. The behavior of the employees should not be seen as a shrug of the should, but acted on so further harassment can be prevented. The statement of Frieda is sexist and degrading on women because the remarks gives more the privileges to the one gender in which being male rather than the other.
Another reason for cyber-harassment is people want to prove themselves and validate their popularity. Most people who cyberbully believe it is not a big deal and do not see the pain that they cause. Instead of empathizing with the victims being bullied, hurting others makes such people feel dominant. Moreover, the bullies, sometimes, believe that the more individuals they torment the more powerful they become.
Sexual violence thereby presents exceptional challenges to the delivery of effective justice processes. The main reason behind it is the denial of offence by the offender and difficulty to secure convictions. To prevent such a scenario, the restorative justice model can be followed which enables earlier admission of guilt thereby providing the victims with the satisfaction of having their victimisation acknowledged. Moreover the actors within the traditional justice system are susceptible to the same flawed beliefs about sexual violence prevalent across society; correspondingly only offences reflecting traditional notions of violence are progressed to a trial. Finally the offenders usually claim innocence on the advice of legal counsel, denying victim acknowledgement and validation of harm, while victims are compelled to withstand re-traumatising and emotionally challenging court procedures with the minimal likelihood of achieving a guilty verdict for their

Conservatism is also a theme in the film and the respect and need for the past and tradition. They show that the results are the important thing and not the process. It is better to get the criminal, however that may be including illegal means then to let them be able to continue to commit crimes against society. This is another crime fiction film and the search for truth and getting the criminal off the streets.
This theory applied to female sex offending can be criticised as there is a considerable amount of offenders who were not victims of sex crimes and decided to engage in the behaviour. Feminist approaches are particularly taken into account and have provided great contribution for the understanding of this topic. This topic particularly challenging for these theorists as women were excluded as sexual perpetrators for several years. They stipulate that sexual abuse is an outlet for the oppression and sexual exploitation women have suffered over the years (Lorber, 2001). Through exercising their power over another person, women are regaining control over the male-dominated culture.
Hate incidents do not become hate crimes until they directly instigate perpetrators to commit violent acts against someone’s property, or when they physically injure the victim. That means that hateful speeches, or other disrespectful and unjust behavior that might have been motivated by bias, are not illegal. Although hate crimes and hate incidents are different they both need to be taken care of because they both create a community-wide disturbance. They should be dealt with by law enforcement and not taken into the hands of the community. When dealt with by law enforcement it helps stabilize the community some while also aiding in the victim or victims recovery process.
It took on the act of sexually penetrating their victim as a power role. Not necessarily that the assailant chose their target and in hopes of relieving whatever sexual urges they may be feeling at that point and time. Rather, the assailant is feeling a lack of control and is desperately searching to get that power back no matter what the consequences may be. I almost think of this of more of a Freudian approach.
