La construction sociale de la délinquance des filles en France de 1850 à 1945

Abstract : Long neglected research work in France, the delinquency of girls is now emerging as a public problem, coming to fuel a controversy around an issue "orphan". Orphan, because this issue is the eternal forgotten French research work as well as statistical data (as the delinquency of women), yet the delinquency of girls is a social reality. This is evidenced by recent research, in sociology in particular, which has addressed the issue of deviant and / or delinquent girls, and the investment of the Ministry of Justice in tenders on the subject. However, all are interested in the question of deviant and / or delinquent girls, thus abandoning the study of the social phenomenon of girls' delinquency in France. A study that is nevertheless necessary since, like any social phenomenon, the delinquency of girls is conditioned by a historical, cultural, social, legal and political context, which defines its existence. The objective of this research project is therefore to highlight the process of social construction of the crime of girls in France, taking as a starting point its legal recognition, namely the law of August 5, 1850. This law, relative the education and patronage of young prisoners, distinguishes in its articles, the consideration and care of delinquent girls and boys. In fact, girls' delinquency has not always been in the shadows. The question is therefore why and how this delinquency has fallen into oblivion. Is it because of a lower involvement of girls in delinquency, is it because of the young age or the feminine gender of these girls?...
