"Anger is seen as a sign of strength. Males are considered to be standing up for their rights if they react to a frustrating or undesirable event with anger. Outrage is often the only reaction to an injustice that is allowed from boys."

- Meg Kennedy Dugan, It's My Life Now: Starting Over After an Abusive Relationship or Domestic Violence (2000)

Crime rates show that men have higher victimization rates than women for almost all categories of violent crime except sexual assault (Truman, 2011). Gender differences vary by crime; for example, men are three times more likely than women to be victims of homicide (Cooper & Smith, 2011). Despite a number of conflicting studies, there is ample evidence that women are the primary victims of gender-related victimizations such as sexual assault, sex trafficking, and sexual harassment (Morash, 2006).

A victim's experiences with the criminal justice system may also be influenced by his or her gender and the type of crime committed. From 2000 to 2009, 20% of the women who reported crimes to police received assistance from victim service agencies, but only 9% of the males received assistance (Langton, 2011).

For this Assignment, you select one of the victims you have previously reviewed in the media and consider the victim's vulnerability to crime, based on gender, including the type of crime committed. You also analyze the influence of gender on the victim's experiences with the criminal justice system.

Explain factors related to gender that might have contributed to the vulnerability of the victim.

Explain factors related to gender that might have played a role in the type of crime committed against the victim.
