The Rise of Female Violence

Written by Jasmin

A British documentary highlighting the problems of the rise of female violence. Street violence and pub brawls are something we have previously only attributed to men. Women’s contributions have largely gone un noticed or under reported.

The first part of the documentary follows Issy’s story of drunken misbehaviours and violent crimes ranging from assaulting police and citizens through to offending a feminist on Twitter (um ah).

It then moves onto a woman who was raised by two violent and abusive parents who went onto to stab her own sister. She said about female crimes “It’s definitely easier to be a girl living the lifestyle of crime because people don’t expect it from you. As women you’re looked upon as people to have kids, create a home and nurture. From what I remember being placed in front of a Judge they used to read what was said and then look at me as if ‘really?’ I feel like I used to get away with a lot because I was a girl”

It presents a balanced view of the gender break down of domestic violence and highlights the appalling lack of accountability for female criminals in the legal system.

This definitely does NOT blame men, in fact I think it’s a very pro male story – particularly following the case of a husband whose wife was charged with attempted murder and convicted for 9 years in prison. It does take a typically compassionate view of women that we don’t attribute to men, however.

It’s well worth a watch
