Title: Dangerous Women
Developed under the guidance of Prof. Amanda Parker, Criminal Justice

The evolution of the role of women has engendered change from submission to empowerment; likewise, the motives for criminal activity have become a mode of power. Through John Hagan’s power-control theory, an examination of opportunity, liberation, and control will attempt to clarify why female serial killers commit violent crimes.
