AnswerI would say that the answer to this is quite a large one. One reason is that there is strong chivalry in the criminal justice system. Men do not want to see more females put in prison, and prosecutors tend to seek lesser sentences for women that commit crimes.

As if the fact that 80% of violent crimes are committed by men has nothing to do with it.
