Most experts attribute the phenomenon primarily to two unrelated factors: the mush- rooming use of narcotics, and the changing role of women. Another element is the deep involvement of many women uidical movements and their attacks on property, draft offices and so on. Says Dr. Marvin E. Wolf- gang of the Criminology Re- search Centre at the Univer- sity of Vcnnsvlvania: "As we a p p r o a e h" greater sexual equality and women engage in more occupations and social interactions, there is a higher probability they'll be involved in more criminal behavior."

In Detroit, arrests of wcmen possessing illegal weapons have climbed 1.255 per cent.
