Women get away with murder

The Death of Right and Wrong: Exposing the Left's Assault on Our Culture and Values by Tammy Bruce

So, it’s verdict of not guilty by reason of insanity for Andrea Yates, the woman who had killed her five children aged 7, 5, 3, 2 and 6 months, on June 20, 2001 at the family home in Texas.

Her case was covered in Tammy Bruce’s book The Death of Right and Wrong: Exposing the Left's Assault on Our Culture and ValuesThe Death of Right and Wrong: Exposing the Left's Assault on Our Culture and Values by Tammy Bruce which condemned her and the feminist establishment for supporting her.

Bruce reports other cases when “diagnoses” of pre-menstrual syndrome or postpartum psychosis had the result of letting women murderers scot-free, which makes her say: “Murdering your children isn't murder if you're a woman-it's post-partum depression”.

And notice how a similar trend is now operating in Hollywood films. This supremely politically correct industry has been producing for a few years now a number of movies where the main woman character, the “heroine”, or even sometimes more than one, commits murder to steal money, or because she was tired of her husband and her “oppressive” feminine role as a housewife, or for other such “noble” reason, and is celebrated for it in the film, which normally ends with the “heroine” getting away with murder, becoming rich and independent and, obviously, happy.

Perhaps the trend was initiated by Thelma and Louise, an obnoxious film but one in which at least the the two women criminals died in the end. But successive films have gone much further than that, allowing female murderers to escape justice and instilling in the viewers’ mind the extremely dangerous idea that women can commit murder and it’s still fine.

If in Hollywood movies men commit rape, let alone murder, you can be sure that they will not get away with it, but women who are killers will often be let off the hook.
