About The Book
Criminologists have noted a disturbing trend in the last few decades- although men are still most often the perpetrators of murder, violent assault, and child molestation, more and more girls and women are becoming dangerous criminals, filling courtrooms and jails. While Americans cannot escape the coverage of young high-profile celebs such as Paris Hilton and Lindsay Lohan trading in swanky anklets for ankle monitors while out on bail, stories about seemingly everyday mothers molesting or killing their children, female teachers having “affairs” with grade school boys, and young girls beating up or molesting other children are becoming increasingly more commonplace. Simultaneously fascinated and repelled by these lurid accounts, people often wonder out loud: How could a mother or young girl do such a thing?
This is the first book for the general reader that explores the full scope of girls and women behaving badly. From inappropriate sexual behavior to brutal murders, forensic psychologist Dr. Larry A. Morris relies on thirty years of personal clinical experience with perpetrators and victims of interpersonal violence to reveal why an alarming number of girls and women are now headed down dangerous paths to crime and punishment.
Morris provides much more than a walk on the forbidden wild side of femininity. By examining the gruesome crimes of femme fatales like Aileen Wuornos, a self-destructive drifter convicted of murdering seven men, the strange case of Lisa Marie Nowak, an astronaut with huge potential at NASA and bigger problems in her love life; and the unthinkable acts of mothers like Susan Smith, who watched her car sink into a North Carolina lake while her two young boys were strapped inside, Morris provides a fresh perspective on the complex biological, developmental, psychological, and sociocultural forces driving girls and women to molest and murder. Blending humanity with scientific rigor and evocative case material, this book draws readers into the direct experiences of dangerous girls and women, their families, and the professionals who try to understand and help them. Along the way, the readers also learn practical ways to prevent these grievous acts from creeping into their lives.
