Abstract

The presence of a woman in the criminal records inevitably requires the


need for a detailed analysis of the criminological characteristics of every


crime in which she is registered as a perpetrator. The trend of increasing


such representation is evident both on a global scale and on a local level.


Emancipation entails its negative effects in the direction of increasing


women's presence as offenders. Normally, the shape, dynamics,


structure and frequency change according to the lifetime, but the


determination of the woman to engage in illicit behavior is strengthened.


Analyzing the type of criminal acts that a today woman performs, we


must mention that they are obligatory divided into two basic groups,


accordingly the separation of criminal acts on the basis of the subject.


They are, delicta communia and delicta propria. Starting from the


second ones, that is, from the special offenses, we must start with a


phenomenological analysis of the crimes in which, according to our


legislation, only the woman can appear as a perpetrator, in this case the


mother. The killing of a child at birth (or more commonly known as


infanticide) is an occurrence dating back to the ancient epoch, and along


with changing the shape, causes, or way of practicing, it persists to this


day. Analyzing the criminological aspects of the phenomenon, in its


phenomenology and etiology, we provide a more detailed introduction


to it and we are setting the possibilities for its prevention and treatment


in practice.
