For my dissertation, I have chosen to explore the field of crime and have decided on the hypothesis ‘men commit more crimes than women’. The purpose of this dissertation is to research previous data and information and carry out primary research which may or may not, tie together to prove my hypothesis. During the dissertation, I will look at previous crime rates which I will find by analyzing online articles and databases and compare them to crime rates in 2017 which I will also find from research and I will carry out a questionnaire targeted at police officers also interview a prison warden and a police detective. I will look to see if there is any correlation with the crime rates over 10 years ago compared to now and I aim to identify if there is a crime where the number committed by women is much higher compared to men. I also aim to prove or disprove my hypothesis ‘men commit more crimes than women’.

One reason that has contributed to my chosen hypothesis is that the hypothesis links to one of my 3 A levels law, meaning that I already have an idea of the background of this topic which will enable me to have knowledge on the area before I even begin my research. I find law extremely interesting and enjoy each topic as the area is so broad which has motivated me to do further research on this particular topic.

The second reason I have chosen to do this topic is that it leads me to my chosen course at university; criminology, which looks at societies views on criminals and criminal behavior. I believe that completing this dissertation will give me a wider knowledge of criminal behavior and prepare me to study this course at an undergraduate level. Not only does it tie in with my future career choice and my chosen A-levels, but it is an area I am interested in as everybody assumes that men commit more crimes than women because most crimes published by the media are committed by men. However, (Strangwood, 2013) says that in ‘1981, the number of men being put behind bars has gone up 112 percent; the number of women, 202 percent.’

The credibility of this source could be argued as it is stated this information is from 1981. However, it is reliable information as we know it is written from a sociology student from Sussex Downs College and the date the article was written was current. The source has also stated on the website that this information was collected from police records so it is evident that this would be reliable information. So, although the information is old, it is still relevant as it shows the previous increase in crime committed by females leading me to want to explore whether it is still the case that men commit more crimes than women.
