Format: Paperback
Many people talk about how bad it is when girls are molested by men... "oh how terrible, what a creep, they should lock him up and throw away the key", etc. Very little is said about female offenders and their victims however, particularly when the victims are teenaged boys. Hislop, who is a practicing therapist makes such oversights much more difficult given the evidence she presents in this study which is written like a scholarly monograph. She references many professionals who are specialists in the field and also presents results from studies of her own.

I didn't read this entire book cover to cover, because parts of it are written more for practicing threrapists, particularly the last part. Much of the book however is accessible to the average educated person. A lot of interesting results were presented. Based on other things I've read and heard, much of the information in this book is not new, but some of it however is quite shocking.

I already knew that female offenders tend to come from chaotic or dysfunctional backgrounds where alcoholism, drug abuse, physical/sexual abuse is the norm. It's also relatively well known that women from such backgrounds tend to select life partners who will re-activate this chaos, if they select a "good guy" however they will do something in their relationship to sabotage it (i.e. commit incest, abuse their kids, cheat, abuse drugs/alcohol, etc.).

Some of the interesting information which I didn't know are the following assertions, which has been confirmed by professionals in the field:

-Men who were incest victims by their mothers tend to suffer from serious psychosomatic symptoms and depression as adults, social dysfunction and are hindered in cognitive development.

As a licensed clinical psychologist, I feel that this is a well written and very well researched book. It shows a lot of insight into a very newly researched field of psychology as well as a practical approach for helping professionals to aid and understand the victums.

7 of 8 people found the following review helpful By R. Wilson on March 16, 2006
Format: Paperback
This book is very well written and researched and I liked Ms. Hislop's factual style of writing. Not far into the book it suddenly struck me as odd that there is so much effort in understanding female sex offenders, but I do not see this same attempt at understanding male offenders ... they just go straight to prison. Is it not possible that they may also be suffering from some childhood trauma done to them or are in other ways in great need of psychological help. Maybe someone could write a book about that.
