    Yes it amazes me as well.  For a crime a male may get several years in prison but the woman gets a good behavior bond, or a fine, or a community work order.  Women with children seem to get away with anything playing "the children need their mother" plea for leniency.  One that amazes me is if a man has sex with an underage teenager he gets years in prison but if a female has sex with an underage teenager she generally gets a slap on the wrist.

      Why women get such low penalties and likely goes home after the court case, while the man gets a long prison term beats me.  So much for sexual equality.

    Good question because women are strong like a man, she can handle weapons, kick-backsides, and call nine-one-one like men do not.

    Possibly it has to do with the fact that most female Prisons are full to the brim with women who are doing time for stealing, prostitution and other non violent illegal acts.

    80% of British female prisoners are in for non violent illegal acts.

    Compared to male prisons,which are predominately full of violent men.

    Judges have been told to be more lenient on woman criminals.

    Most of the crimes are done by the men & the victims are women and therefore the rules are protecting the women from being a victim by the men.

    It's less the "justice system" as it is individual jurors. Most juries tend to go easier on female vs. male defendants even if the charges are identical. Some sociologists have surmised that this is because they consider their own personal safety in making their decisions and more people fear a criminal man than a criminal women.
