This paper identifies three theoretical perspectives on changing patterns of female criminality: a Durkheimian-Modernization perspective; a Marxian-World System perspective and an Ecological-Opportunity perspective (see Neuman and Berger, 1988). It draws convergent and divergent hypotheses from these perspectives and tests them with data from up to 49 nations. The empirical evidence suggests that all three perspectives are useful for understanding cross-national differences in female criminality.
