Cambridge University Press is publishing a new edition of “The Myth of Male Privilege,” a groundbreaking study examining the ways in which women have historically been held back in society.
The book is being released on November 22.
In a recent article, writer Jennifer Doudna says she wants readers to recognize the differences in the ways men and women are treated in the criminal justice system.
For starters, women are disproportionately charged with crimes.
According to the United States Bureau of Justice Statistics, women make up 17 percent of all federal prisoners, but account for more than half of all people in state prisons.
According the Sentencing Project, women commit nearly 60 percent of the state prison population.
According a 2014 article in the New York Times, a large majority of rapists are men.
“There is a fundamental difference in how men and men are treated,” Doudnas article states.
“Women are disproportionately represented in prison.
That is the reality.
And it is a reality that the criminal legal system cannot address because women are overrepresented in prison.”
In a new video, the authors of the book say they believe the gap between women and men in the prison system is due to a lack of institutional support.
In the video, they highlight a recent incident in which an Alabama man, who is serving life without parole for the murder of a former employee, was allegedly sexually assaulted while in jail.
When the man went to speak to his lawyer, the woman who was with him refused to allow him to call his lawyer.
The man went back to jail and was assaulted again by another inmate.
The video went viral on Twitter.
“We’re here to speak out against a system that systematically erases men from the criminal-justice system, from the judiciary, from our social circles,” the authors write.
“In this case, an inmate who was accused of rape and who was not present at the time was left to fend for himself.”
The authors say their research shows that women are less likely to report being raped than men.
They also say women who are sexually assaulted are more likely to blame themselves and have difficulty trusting others.
Doudnas and her coauthor, Jennifer Bresnahan, say the lack of support from the legal system can cause women to believe that their behavior is acceptable.
“When they don’t believe they are wrong, they often blame themselves,” Doutanas video states.
The book details the experiences of more than 1,200 people in the U.S. who have been raped.
Doudna, who previously wrote for the New Yorker, says that many of the victims are survivors of sexual assault themselves.
Some of the stories include a man who was raped while in prison by a fellow inmate who beat and choked him until he passed out.
The author also wrote a graphic story about a woman who had been raped while on probation and was afraid to report it because of the stigma attached to the crime.
According to the book, women in prison have been incarcerated at a rate that is six times higher than men in prison, and the rates of rape are twice as high.
While women in prisons are less often charged with a crime than men, Doudnnas and Bresnians research shows, the disparity between the rates is even more stark.
In one study, Doutnas and colleagues looked at the statistics for women in Alabama.
They found that the rate of rape in Alabama is 15 times that of men.
And the rate was three times higher in Louisiana than in Alabama, which was the state that led the country in the number of rapes committed by women.
Bresnanes findings also showed that women in Louisiana were more likely than men to have been arrested for drug possession and less likely than the men to be convicted of a crime.
The researchers say the disparity is especially troubling because it can affect women’s ability to have meaningful connections with the outside world.
A number of researchers have been trying to quantify the disparity.
For example, a 2013 study conducted by Harvard researchers found that women who reported being raped had a higher likelihood of being unemployed and less able to get jobs.
The authors found that when they examined the data, the likelihood of a woman being raped also rose as a percentage of her income when the rapist was a woman.
Women also have higher rates of homelessness and lower wages, according to a 2012 study published in the journal Sociology of Violence.
So, the researchers say, the difference between women in the system and men who are charged with rape and convicted could have an impact on how those women and their families will be treated in their criminal cases.
