Abstract:

This paper reviews the issues surrounding gender disparities in
relation to the application of the death penalty for convicted women
murderers in the United States. Concern regarding gender disparity and the
implementation of capital punishment are further complicated by racial,
ethnic, and sexual orientation elements. Though the number of U.S. women on
death row is slight in comparison to that of men, the nature of their
capital offenses and the representation of women of color and lesbians
facing execution certainly deserve more attention from scholars by placing
focus on political and social influences. Issues regarding the race of
victims as well as their relationship to the defendant are also addressed.
