Don't assume which men and women do less or more crimes, because you don't know everyone in the world, so you can't make an assumption of "why do females commit less crimes", because you don't know that. Meet over the 6 billion people in the world first, and then ask this question. Sounds impossible? Of course, because the world may never know who does the most crimes between female and male.
