In recent years feminist theorizing around gender and crime has focused predominantly on women as victims in their own homes and communities rather than as offenders. From this same perspective, even those women convicted of criminal offences are often refrained as victims. This article outlines some of the evidence suggesting feminist criminology might reconsider women as offenders in order to more fully appreciate and understand the crimes that women commit within the environs of the local informal or criminal markets.
