This paper explores the role and place held by women in the context of Canadian criminal offences. The offences that will be examined involve women either as victims (sexual assault, voyeurism and domestic violence), as offenders (infanticide and abortion), or both (prostitution). While this paper solely constitutes an overview of this immense topic, the author brings a critical, social and historical perspective to some of the issues raised by these criminal offences.
