Abstract

In the criminological studies of the woman as a perpetrator of criminal acts, it is of crucial importance to mention her gradual escalation of representation in the total recorded crime, globally speaking. Stressing the importance of developing a dose of "feminist" approach into the criminology, which would be no more but a separate study of a woman as a perpetrator, the starting point would be the analyze of the types of the crimes she commits, applying the gender-sensitized mark in the process. Thus, we could not fully capture the current state of the woman's participation in the total crime, without mentioning the business - woman and the criminal acts that she might commit while working. Women's access to powerful organizational structures is growing, although still limited, which is in line with the theory of opportunities. The term “pink collar” crime appears as a counterpart to the "white collar" crime and is carried out by women whose office jobs can be characterized as being low to medium level. Women's involvement in the white - collar criminality exists, but significantly less often than that of a man, and is carried out from significantly lower positions. Therefore, it gets an appropriate theoretical title (pink collar crime) and develops an understanding for the lack of study of the phenomena.
