It will never happen! Why? Because in LAW would become discriminatory towards men. Judges can already take into consideration circumstances when applying sentence. What if a male so happens to look after a child, commits a crime, is vulnerable, would he serve his sentence in the community?

I believe what you are saying is true

However more often in a lot of cases, the woman decides to do criminal acts due to emotive reasons as women are more emotional. When revealing this in court, they often are innocent or discharged. The jury in trials are often more lenient on women than men. There is also a sociological term called the Chivalry theory where actually a woman's illegal actions would be looked over because she is femininity. So women do get away with a lot of crimes.

Sometimes just to save a woman's face, they do not report crimes against women such as rape or domestic abuse. they believe as these crimes are so one-sided in arguments as there is no evidence. A woman will feel the man or another woman is getting away with it.

In terms of law and punishment, they can not be biased however women can get it softer depending on how damning the case can be. In early years of female prisons, they did have horrible punishments and usually worse than men. However now they are becoming softer or making it more equal to a man

Women should be equal under the law. However there is a gap in sentencing where women receive less time than men

I cant accept, but some women deserve to get softer punishment, like pregnant women. Women are also staistically weaker then men so they mau not be able to work as hard
