But there is an equal emphasis on women, who are far from neglected in this genre. In contradistinction to the criminological data of that time, the criminal femmes fatales play central roles in the narratives and inhabit similar circles of violence.

I’m damned if I’ll make a chump of myself by telling you why I did it, why it was neither revolting nor disgusting” (DC: 282).

In this regard, Chesler in her influential book Women and Madness (1972), which examines the terms in which women and madness have been associated in sociological research, maintains that gender is embodied in madness itself and there is a double standard in the treatment of women.
